ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some top cops were recognized for their work in Dougherty County Monday. Sheriff Kevin Sproul recognized Officer Stephanie Walker as Jail employee of the year and Sgt. Pamela Thomas as the Sheriff's Office employee of the year.
Police Chief Don Cheek recognized Lt. Tom Jackson and Corporal Bill Smith as his officers of the year. He also had two top guns. There was a tie between Investigator Clayton Bryant, who received the award last year, and Officer Stewart Williamson. Both had more than a 95% accuracy rate when firing their weapons.
Williamson said, "Proud to have because you owe it to the citizens of Dougherty County. You owe it to your fellow men and women in law enforcement to be the best with your firearm they give you. You can't risk misfiring or being a bad shot."
The top gun winners offered to do a demonstration for the county commission this morning at the meeting, they, of course, declined.
