Deputy Scott Barton
Occupation: Deputy with Victoria County Sheriff’s Office
Why honored: Deputy Scott Barton answered a call on Friday, June 15, of a 6-year-old boy, Micah Adams, and his grandmother asking for help in locating the boy’s bike, which had been lost while Micah and a friend were riding through a corn field.
The young man’s grandmother, knowing there could be problems associated with trespassing, was hoping the Victoria County Sheriff’s Office might help recover the bike from the pasture where her grandson had lost it.
Deputy Barton’s work on patrol and his efforts to contact and learn who the landowners were offered an opportunity to help. Deputy Barton contacted the farmer of the pasture and gained his consent to go onto the property to search for the young man’s bike, which lead to the recovery of the bike – not to mention a very excited and grateful Micah.
If there is ever a situation in which the Victoria County Sheriff’s Office can be of assistance, do not hesitate to contact them. Deputy Scott Barton is just one example of excellence in law enforcement there to serve you.
