Remembering Steve


To the Editor:

Switzerland County has lost the only true Peace Officer it had. God bless Steve Adams. He treated everyone the same, no matter the last name. You never heard about him harassing anyone. Mr. Adams was a keeper of the peace and a respectable officer of the law. We will have to look long and hard to get someone to fill his shoes.

Officer Adams taught many of us some valuable lessons. He never acted like “Mr. Bad A-.” He was a teacher of respect. Switzerland County overlooked him at one time when he should have been appointed Chief of Police. We all lost out on that bad decision.

Our hope is that we can find more officers like Steve Adams to uphold our laws and support the community with respect. He will be sadly missed.
