Release from the Georgia Sheriffs' Association

Crisp County's Col. Billy Hancock was honored by the Georgia Sheriffs' Association, Inc. during its summer training conference for his tireless dedication and commitment to excellence to the citizens of the state of Georgia and the Office of Sheriff.

Sheriff Donnie Haralson presented Hancock the prestigious 2010 Deputy of the Year Award of Professional Contribution, recognizing him for his outstanding contribution to the sheriff's office and the community through the exceptional achievement and performance of his duties in an exemplary manner.

Hancock has served the Crisp County Sheriff's Office for 25 years. "As chief deputy, he has performed his duties without hesitation, with a positive attitude and sheer pleasure.  His dedication to the motto "Integrity First, Service Before Self" is always evident in his performance of his duties," stated Sheriff Donnie Haralson.

Haralson continued by stating,  "During the past seven years as I battled renal cell carcinoma, Billy has without hesitation stepped up to the plate and made sure the sheriff's office never missed a beat. His dedication to this office and our citizens is commendable.  He deserved this award."

"Col. Hancock is an asset to the Office of the Sheriff, the Georgia Sheriffs' Association, and the law enforcement community. His expertise, passion for the law enforcement and public safety, and in-depth knowledge of the criminal justice system is evident when he steps into a classroom," stated J. Terry Norris, Executive Director, Georgia Sheriffs' Association.  Hancock has taught classes for the Georgia Sheriffs' Association for the past ten years, sharing his expertise statewide.

The Georgia Sheriffs' Association is comprised of 159 elected sheriffs with the support of  over 45,000 honorary members throughout the state who recognized and appreciate the service of the constitutional Office of Sheriff and the Georgia Sheriffs' Youth Homes.
