FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) - Ben Hill County Sheriff Bobby McLemore announced Monday that Maj. Patrick Hogan has been selected as Ben Hill County's Officer of the Year.

Hogan began his career with the Ben Hill County Sheriff's Office in 2005 as an Investigator in the Criminal Investigations Division (CID). On his first day on the job, he began working a homicide case and the defendant was convicted in court.

He came to the sheriff's office with experience with the GBI, Thomasville PD, and Tifton PD.  

He just finished another double homicide that he has investigated for the past two years. The defendant was sentenced to Life without possibility of Parole, plus five years. 

McLemore said "Hogan did a superb job on each of these Murder cases as well and the hundreds of other cases he has worked. He has done an outstanding job leading the CID division and the cases he worked."

Maj. Hogan was selected as Officer of the Year by the Cordele Judicial Circuit District Attorney and Victim's Advocate. "Major Hogan is very deserving of this award and we are proud he is a member of our team," McLemore  said.
