SUNSET BEACH — Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealey was recently honored by the North Carolina Sheriff’s Association for his 10 years of service.
Sheriffs with 10 or more years of service were recognized during the Sheriff’s Association 93rd Annual Training Conference in Sunset Beach by Carteret County Sheriff Asa Buck, president of the association,
“Sheriff’s play a vital role in ensuring the safety and security of the citizens of North Carolina, and it is a great privilege to honor those who have served for 10 or more consecutive years as sheriff of their communities,” Buck said in a statement.
At the annual conference, sheriffs attended training classes on leadership during times of crisis, managing the media in crisis, post-crisis intervention and gang threats to law enforcement. They also discussed the state budget and actions by the General Assembly that affect law enforcement.
“Sheriffs in every county of North Carolina are facing tremendous challenges in carrying out their responsibilities for law enforcement and the safety of our citizens; maintenance and operation of local jails; recruiting, training and maintaining talented personnel; working with domestic situations, child abuses cases, serving civil papers, tracking sex offenders in the state, issuing weapons permits, providing court security and in many other areas,” Sealey said in a statement.
