There’s a new sheriff in town.
After the resignation of Sheriff Sean Crosier the Monroe County Commission has decided to appoint Kenneth Hedricks the newest sheriff. He will hold office until they have the general election next year when they choose a new sheriff by public vote. Hedrick has been the chief deputy going on 9 years and believes it should be a smooth transition.
“I’ve been doing this a long time so I hope to be pretty comfortable in it, we will see, I guess I’m happy, I hope everyone else will be,” Sheriff, Kenneth Hedrick, said.
He told us he will officially start his position Monday.
