Scott County Sheriff's Office Jail Officer Informally Recognized


Scott County Sheriff's Office Deputy Jail Officer Informally Recognized by Addiction Ministries Leader and the Men and Women of the Scott County Sheriff's Office

Scott County- It is pleasurable to hear great things about teammates you are blessed to work with...this news release is an awesome reflection of just that. Tim Williams of New Creation Addiction Ministries, a ministry partner "teaching God's word" to inmates of the Scott County Jail felt compelled to share his thoughts about Deputy Jailer Kathy Burge, also known as "Momma Burge" by those blessed by her presence and untiring commitment to her profession. Deputy Jailer Burge was described by Williams as "my liaison at the jail, who every day I am blessed to teach God's word, ensures the inmates are ready to go upon my arrival and encourages those who are not feeling the love by getting them out of their bunk and into the classroom...a den mother with a badge if you will!  When Deputy Jailer Burge recognized a need for more classes to support the number of inmates at the jail, she encouraged and supported Williams by requesting he start a second class to support her flock, which he did. Williams closed by saying "Between her joy and compassion, Deputy Jailer Burge is always a pleasure to work with", a sentiment echoed by Jail Commander Doug Herald and her teammates at the Scott County Sheriff's Office.  Deputy Jailer Burge's work ethic and dedication is an example shared by many Jail Deputies...together, they are what makes the Scott County Jail a positive model for others to emulate statewide.
