Sheriff’s Office Recognitions

Throughout the year, we commend those that go above and beyond the call of duty. This year we recognized the following:

Deputy of the Year/Deputy of the First Quarter Sgt. D. Alford

Our 2019 Deputy of the Year AND Deputy of the First Quarter was Sgt. D. Alford. Sgt. Alford was commended for apprehending two Murder/Robbery suspects out of Louisiana after a vehicle pursuit that later turned into a foot pursuit. Sgt. Alford’s impeccable judgment in apprehending the suspects justify his nomination for both, Deputy of the Year and Deputy of the First Quarter! Keep up the good work, Sgt!

Deputy of the Second Quarter Lt J. Douglass

Lt. J. Douglass was recognized for his diligence and attention in recognizing four suspects which lead to their capture after noticing them while off duty in a public establishment. Lt. Douglass’ attentiveness ultimately led to the suspects being charged with Burglary. Keep up the good work, Lt.!

Deputy of the Third Quarter Sgt. D. Talley

Sgt. D. Talley earned his commendation after recognizing a suspect wanted for felony warrants as well as federal charges out of another state. Due to Sgt. Talley’s keen eye, and his attention to detail, even after being faced with a very vague description of the suspect’s vehicle, earned him the recognition of Deputy of the Third Quarter. Congratulations Sgt. Talley!

Deputy of the Fourth Quarter Cpl. J. Shepherd

Cpl. J. Shepherd was recognized for his diligent work ethics in apprehending several suspects believed to be responsible for Murder as well as injury to two other citizens after the investigations began with only street names for the suspects. Cpl. Shepherd’s dedication and professionalism led to the arrests as well as solving a Burglary investigation. Thank you, Cpl. Shepherd for your work ethic and professionalism!
