    In honor of the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing this week, Sheriff Chad Chronister released a motivational message to Hillsborough County residents on Tuesday, July 16, the anniversary of the Apollo 11 space launch.

    "It took courage, commitment and audacity to believe that we, as ordinary men and women, could achieve something as monumental as walking on the moon," said Sheriff Chronister in the video shared on social media. Sheriff Chronister compared the characteristics of our nation's great astronauts to that of local law enforcement officers who show courage on the job daily. He offered a message of encouragement to viewers.

    "We can't all travel into outer space, but all of us have the ability to change lives and achieve greatness in our own right," said Sheriff Chronister. "I hope the accomplishments of our nation's astronauts will continue to inspire us all for 50 more years and beyond."
