Sheriff's Office Receives Santee Cooper Award for Excellence
The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce that they were the 2012 recipient of the Santee Cooper Excellence in Law Enforcement Award. Representatives from the Department accepted the award on November 13th at the South Carolina Criminal Justice Training conference in Myrtle Beach.
The Santee Cooper Excellence in Law Enforcement award recognizes the premier agency in the state and is only awarded to one agency each year. Recipients of the award are chosen by the SCLEOA awards committee and all state, county, and municipal law enforcement agencies are eligible for consideration. This award, sponsored by Santee Cooper, recognizes the overall activities and achievements of an entire law enforcement agency or department. The award recognizes the efforts of the entire team rather than those of an individual. Major qualifications of the award are: effort, innovative service to the community, efficiency, and results.
Sheriff Faile said, “We are extremely excited and proud to receive this recognition. I have always believed that we had one of the best agencies and some of the best employees in the state. Now everyone else sees that as well. The men and women of the Sheriff’s Office have worked extremely hard to bring this agency to its current status. None of our achievements would have been possible without that dedication and I am honored to be part of their team.”
