Rev. Shad Barrow
Chief Deputy Franklin R. Fulcher
My fellow citizens. I write to you today to thank you for allowing me to serve you as your Sheriff for the past 12 years. On December 4th 2006 I took the oath of Office at the age of 31, the youngest Sheriff in the State of NC at that time. I held this designation for eight years.
I am very proud where we’ve come and of many things we have accomplished over the past 12 years. What I am proudest of are the good people who have worked so hard to make The Sheriff’s Office what it is and what it should be.
We have many dedicated public servants serving you every day in our Office from our command and administrative staff, detectives, patrol deputies, civil deputies, school resource officers, court bailiffs, detention staff and volunteers. They are where the rubber meets the road and they all do a great job for our Office and our County.
I thank all the members of our Sheriff’s Office team. I am very proud of them and honored to be able to lead such a fine organization of law enforcement professionals.
I would like recognize and thank the County Commissioners for the funding they have provided to the Sheriff’s Office over the years. Our Commissioners have been very supportive of our efforts and I truly appreciate their support.
I thank the County Managers and many other members of the County Government for the support they have shown our Office. They’re help and support is greatly appreciated.
I’d like to thank the leaders and members of the other law enforcement agencies in our county as well as other state and federal partners. Right now we have the best working relationship we have ever had and it shows and it is making a difference in the level of service provided to the public. All Carteret County citizens should be proud of all of their law enforcement agencies.
Most of all, I thank you the citizens of Carteret County. I could not be your Sheriff and do the job of Sheriff if you didn’t allow me to do so. Your trust, support and assistance over the past 12 years has been tremendous and has meant more to me and the Sheriff’s Office than you could ever know.
We have all come a long way together and I look forward to the future and continuing to serve you as your Sheriff.
Being your Sheriff has been, and continues to be, one of the greatest honors in my life.
Thank you so very much.

Beaufort, NC – Every day millions of students use school buses as transportation to and from school. Although school buses represent the safest form of highway transportation, there are a number of safety factors of which both student and drivers should be aware. Hoping to ensure school bus safety, Sheriff Buck of Carteret County encourages caution whenever school buses are present.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in recent years there were an average of 131 fatalities in school transportation-related traffic crashes each year and more school-aged pedestrians have been killed during the hours of 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. than any other time of day.
“Children are often eager to get off the school bus because they are excited to tell their parents about all of the fun they had at school that day,” said Sheriff Buck.
“It is crucial that parents re-enforce the school bus safety rules children learn at school.”
Sheriff Buck also suggests that parents drive their child’s bus route with them to practice the proper safety precautions they can take to help ensure their child enjoys a safe ride to and from school.
Sheriff Buck encourages all parents to discuss the following safety measures with their children:
- Always arrive at the bus stop at least 5 minutes early.
- While the bus is approaching make sure to stand at least three giant steps away from the curb, wait until the bus has come to a complete stop, the door opens, and the bus driver says that it’s OK to board.
- Always walk on the sidewalk when preparing to cross the street near a bus. Make eye contact with the driver so that you are sure he or she sees you.
- Never walk behind the bus.
- If you are walking beside the bus, walk at least three giant steps away.
- Use the handrail when entering and exiting the bus. Take extra precautions to make sure that clothing with drawstrings and book bags do not get caught in the hand rail or door.
- Never stop to pick something up that you have dropped when a bus is stopped. Tell the bus driver or wait until the bus has driven off to avoid not being seen by the driver.
- Remember that children are unpredictable in their actions. Take extreme caution when traveling in a school zone.
- If there are no sidewalks, drive cautiously. Be more alert to the possibility of children walking in the road.
- Slow down and prepare to stop whenever you see yellow school bus lights flashing.
- Never pass a school bus when there are flashing red lights and the stop arm is extended. This is a sign that children are getting on or off the bus. Motorists must wait until the red lights stop flashing, the stop arm is withdrawn, and the bus is moving before they can start driving again.
- Learn and obey the school bus laws in North Carolina.
