BEN HILL COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

A south Georgia sheriff is now the leader of the state's sheriffs group.

Ben Hill County Sheriff Bobby McLemore was sworn in as president of the Georgia Sheriffs' Association last Thursday. The one year term includes meeting with other sheriffs, state agencies and the legislature. He was elected as the secretary-treasurer three years ago, which paved the way for this new position.

"It's an honor just to be Sheriff. But to be elected to the top position in the Georgia Sheriffs' Association is indeed an honor,"

McLemore has been the Ben Hill County Sheriff for 9 years. There are 159 sheriffs in Georgia. Decatur County Sheriff Wiley Griffin is the first Vice President of the association.
