Sheriff Recognizes County Jailers

"Hidden Force of Law Enforcement"

Sgt. Wade Barker was one of the 25 staff members of the Lee County Jail to get certificates of appreciation from Sheriff Tracy Carter for their work in the county detention facility . The awards were a surprise presentation at an 8 am staff meeting. Noting that the jailers work behind thick walls, Sheriff Carter referred to them as the "hidden force of law enforcement" and a vital part of the Lee County Sheriff Office's team.
