Sheriff John Doolen wants to warn everyone of local scams. Subjects have been going to local businesses asking for money to support the local law enforcement calendar. There is currently no such calendar. The company name is “Community Calendars” of Corinth, MS. Arrests have been made in this case and we are continuing to investigate. If you believe you may have been the victim of this scam, please call the Hardeman County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency line at (731) 228-3030.
On Thursday March 31, Sheriff John Doolen was honored at the National Guard Armory in Bolivar for his patriotic support. Sheriff Doolen was nominated for the Patriot award by Cody Naylor and Justin Bryant, both of whom are deputies with the Hardeman County Sheriff’s Office and also serve in the National Guard. The Patriot Award reflects the efforts made to support Citizen Warriors through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families and granting leaves of absence if needed.
“In God We Trust” was adopted as the official motto of the United States in 1956. “In God we trust” first appeared on U.S. coins in 1864 and has appeared on paper currency since 1957. In August 2015, Sheriff Doolen decided to add the motto to the Hardeman County Sheriff’s Office patrol cars. This logo came at no cost to the county thanks to Southern Designs of Bolivar who donated the decals. The motto is being placed on patrol cars all across the nation. “With everything going on in the world right now, God is the only thing we can trust,” Sheriff Doolen said. Doolen said the phrase does not specify which God it is referring to and does not infringe on anyone’s rights.
