Police and County Officers/Deputies
I would like to stop and "thank" the city and county officers who put their lives on the line each day AND night so that my family and I can feel safe and secure! These positions seem to be a "thankless job" and I know they are underpaid because my uncle is a cop in another county; however, these men and women serve Yancey County with courage, honor and integrity. I appreciate Sheriff Banks and Chief Buchanan for their proven leadership skills and the hard work they put in for the citizens of Yancey County. So, "THANK YOU" for keeping drugs to a minimum and getting thugs off the streets and roads of Yancey! Keep up the great work and you are in our prayers!
