Liberty County Sheriff Steve Sikes recently was honored by his peers and the Georgia Sheriff Association.
Sikes attended sheriff-elect training, a required course for newly elected sheriffs, and graduated from the four-week course Dec. 14. The training was held in Forsyth.
Sikes said 39 newly elected sheriffs participated the 160-hour program. Among those in attendance were Long County Sheriff Craig Nobles, Glynn County Sheriff-elect Neal Jump and Camden County Sheriff-elect Jim Proctor.
“And I was voted by my peers as president of the class, which I’m proud of, and I also received the Georgia Sheriff Association’s Leadership Award,” Sikes said. “I think I represented Liberty County well.”
After graduating, Sikes received his completion certificate signed by Gov. Nathan Deal.
Sikes begins his first four-year term and was sworn into office Thursday morning by Judge Nancy K. Aspinwall. That afternoon Sikes, Proctor and Sheriff Steve Jessup of McIntosh County attended Jump’s inauguration in Glynn County.
Sikes said that he and the newly elected sheriffs plan to work together to make all of Southeast Georgia better for their citizens.
