 Mr. BOOZMAN. Mr. President, today I wish to honor Boone County

the improvements within the department and the services available to 
the citizens of Boone Country. Sheriff Hickman made 21st century

  In addition, he continuously strived for opportunities to learn the

Institute and to help meet the needs of rural communities during the 
Rural Executive Management Institute.
  His efforts helped bring nearly $\1/2\ million in Federal grants for 
school resource officers, a domestic violence officer, radio and camera 
equipment for area schools, and law enforcement services in Boone 
County. Sheriff Hickman made safety improvements a priority.
  He has a true passion to making sure the people of Arkansas. Sheriff 
Hickman is the past president of the Arkansas Sheriff's Association and

success in the future. We are all grateful for his years of service and 
leadership in Boone County.
