OKLAHOMA COUNTY, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office is asking for your help documenting its more than 100 year old history.

"For an agency that's been in existence since 1890, we don't have a whole lot of stuff," says OCSO Public Information Officer Mark Myers.

Myers put out a plea on social media, asking people to share their old pictures and artifacts related to the OCSO. He heard from people like Mark Turner.

Turner's grandfather Bob served as Oklahoma County Sheriff for more than 25 years. Turner says he wants to share a picture he has framed on the wall of his home of Sheriff Turner with President Kennedy.

"Over the years it's meant more to me," says Turner, who said he acquired the picture after his grandparents passed away.

Myers says its an SOS: "Save our Story." He also hopes to get the pictures of Deputy Levi "Bill: Ezzell who died in 1914 and Deputy Pete Anderson who died in 1890.

They are two of the seven deputies who died in the line of duty that the Sheriff's Office doesn't have pictures of.

If you want to share your pictures, you can do so by using #OCSOhistory on twitter. You can also send pictures to mmyers@okcounty.org or you can call Mark Myers at 713-1029.
