The Garden produced more than 10,000 pounds of produce and the ACSO released 250 adult pheasants locally to try to help stimulate the local economy by providing game that has until recently been unavailable in Allegany County. The Allegany County Sheriff’s Office staff should be commended for how they handled such rapid growth. They met every challenge head on and offered good solutions so that the ACSO could deliver good service to the citizens of the county. Respectfully Submitted
