SANDPOINT — The Bonner County Sheriff’s Office was presented with the U.S. Department of Defense’s Employer Support of the Guard & Reserve Seven Seals award on Wednesday, April 10.

The award is the broadest and most inclusive award given by ESGR at the discretion of the State Chair or by ESGR senior leadership in recognition of significant individual or organizational achievement, initiative, or support of the ESGR mission.

ESGR Volunteer Margaret Ogram stated, “I am nominating the Bonner County, Idaho Sheriff’s Office for award of the Employer’s Support of the Guard and Reserves Seven Seals Award. Currently, 24 of the Sheriff’s Office 112 employees (that’s 21 percent) are either veterans, current members of the guard and reserves or both. It is the highest percentage of veteran/military employees that I am aware of in northern Idaho.”

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to lead an organization committed to hiring veterans, guard members, and reservists who have pledged their lives to defend and protect our U.S. Constitution. This award is a reflection of the commitment and dedication of the men and women who work at the sheriff’s office,” said Sheriff Daryl Wheeler.
