Ross County Sheriff Supports Farm Bureau Reward Program

The Ross County Sheriff’s Office and the Ross County Farm Bureau have partnered to promote the Ohio Farm Bureau’s $2,500 Reward Program.

The Reward Program was created over 40 years ago to aid in the apprehension and conviction of individuals who have committed serious crimes against Farm Bureau members.

“Farm Bureau is thrilled to have the support of Sheriff Lavender’s office,” said Frank Clary, a board member and family farmer volunteer of the Ross County Farm Bureau. “The program is designed to help neighbors look out for each other in our rural communities.”

The $2,500 reward is paid to both Farm Bureau members and nonmembers who provide law enforcement officials with information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those who commit arson, malicious injury to property, burglary or other felonies on a Farm Bureau member’s property.

The Ohio Farm Bureau Reward Program recently received the support of the Buckeye State Sheriffs’ Association, a statewide group consisting of Ohio’s 88 county sheriffs. 

The property protection program is funded through Ohio Farm Bureau, county Farm Bureaus and Nationwide Insurance. It is for all types of Ohio Farm Bureau members, from farmers to businesses to urban residents.
