  • This film focuses on the Washington County Deputy Auxiliary Unit, designed to account for the lack of an adequate sheriff's office. The film contains a dramatization of the unit in action. In closing, Sheriff George Watts makes a few statements advising other Florida county officials to be watchful of attempts to centralize government and advocates the creation of auxiliary deputy units elsewhere.
