Union County Offers Extra Security for Houses of Worship throughout the Community

The Union County Board of County Commissioners stands in solidarity with the nation of Israel, denouncing the recent attacks by the Hamas terrorist organization. These distressing events highlight the urgent need for lasting solutions that ensure the safety and well-being of all individuals, regardless of their background.

While Union County currently faces no immediate threats, the Union County Board of County Commissioners, Union County Sheriff Peter Corvelli, in collaboration with community members of faith, are taking a proactive approach and have collaborated to enhance security around houses of worship in response to the ongoing events in the Middle East.

“Our commitment to creating an inclusive and unified community remains firm during these turbulent times,” said Commissioner Chairman Sergio Granados. “Our number one priority is the safety of our residents and we remain dedicated to providing a secure and welcoming environment for all community members. We pray for a swift and equitable resolution to the conflict, one that brings enduring peace and stability to the region, benefiting both Israelis and Palestinians.”

“A dedicated team of officers will be offering additional security for houses of worship throughout Union County as an extra sense of peace for those who gather to worship, ensuring that they can do so without fear,” said Sheriff Peter Corvelli. “As the Sheriff of Union County, it is my duty to safeguard all of our residents, and this added layer of protection emphasizes our promise to that mission.”

The Union County Board of County Commissioners continue to share their thoughts and prayers to the people in the regions of both Israelis and Palestinians, as well as to all the victims and their families during this devastating time.
