Sheriff extends thanks to area law enforcement

Sheriff extends thanks to area law enforcement
29 May 2018

As Law Enforcement Appreciation month comes to a close, I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to my deputies and investigators at the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, and to my Chief, Kevin Windham. I currently have nine deputies, four investigators and my Chief to handle upwards of 1,000 cases per month. This is an enormous task for 14 people.

I would like to thank all five constables: Zack Warr, Jamie Hagler, Roy Cheatwood, Jake Metcalf and Robert Hairgrove; Center Police Department, Timpson Police Department, Tenaha City Police, Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Parks and Wildlife and District Attorney Investigator Joey Haley. With the help of all these officers, many times working out of their jurisdiction, they help ensure Shelby County is covered when you are in need of help. We are all working hard to make Shelby County a safe and great place to live and raise our families.

Please join me in thanking these officers the next time you see one working to keep you safe.

Sheriff Willis Blackwell
