TO CONGRATULATE SHERIFF JIM MOORE OF LAURENS COUNTY AND COMMEND THE LAURENS COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE FOR ATTAINING THE FIRST SOUTH CAROLINA LAW ENFORCEMENT ACCREDITATION COUNCIL'S CERTIFICATE IN RECOGNITION OF THE LAURENS COUNTY SHERIFF OFFICE'S DEDICATION TO LAW ENFORCEMENT PROFESSIONALISM.
Whereas, on January 4, 2000, Sheriff Jim Moore, on behalf of the Laurens County Sheriffs Office, was awarded a certificate presented by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Accreditation Council, thereby becoming the first sheriff' s office in the State of South Carolina and the first law enforcement agency in the State of South Carolina to achieve accreditation status from South Carolina Law Enforcement Association; and
Whereas, the Laurens County Sheriff's office was represented by Sheriff Moore and its accreditation manager, Captain Ricky Chastain, during the South Carolina Law Enforcement Accreditation Council's deliberations, and Captain Chastain spearheaded the accreditation process on behalf of Sheriff Moore and the Laurens County Sheriff's office; and
Whereas, accreditation increases the ability of the Laurens County Sheriff's office to prevent and control crime through a more effective and efficient delivery of law enforcement services to the community and county it serves by establishing precise written policies and procedures, promoting cooperation and coordination among law enforcement personnel and with other agencies in the criminal justice system; and
Whereas, accreditation also enhances community understanding of the law enforcement agency's goals and objectives and its role in the community. Moreover, accreditation raises the professional standards of law enforcement officers to become synonymous with the accountability, integrity, liability, performance, and community partnership; and
Whereas, this accreditation is for a period of three years at which time the Laurens County Sheriffs office will be subject to a reassessment process. Sheriff Moore and the Laurens County Sheriff's office have been and will continue to be firmly behind the accreditation process and the professional standards. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the House of Representatives, by this resolution, congratulate Sheriff Jim Moore of Laurens County and commend the Laurens County Sheriff's office for attaining the first South Carolina Law Enforcement Accreditation Council's Certificate in recognition of the Laurens County Sheriff office's dedication to law enforcement professionalism.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the Laurens County Sheriff's Office.
