TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME APPROXIMATELY FIFTEEN MILES OF PLEASANT HILL DRIVE FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH COUNTY LINE ROAD TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH NORTH FRASER STREET IN GEORGETOWN COUNTY "A. LANE CRIBB HIGHWAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS LOCATION CONTAINING THE DESIGNATION.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Sheriff A. Lane Cribb on September 19, 2019; and
Whereas, a native of Georgetown County, Sheriff A. Lane Cribb launched his career in law enforcement with the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission in 1973. Prior to his service as sheriff, he also worked as a criminal investigator with the Florence County Sheriff's Department; and
Whereas, Sheriff Cribb was elected to the Georgetown County Office of Sheriff in 1992, and he served with integrity and compassion, gaining the trust and confidence of the county's citizens. He was subsequently re-elected and maintained the office continually until his death in his seventh term; and
Whereas, under Sheriff Cribb's leadership, Georgetown County's crime clearance rates far exceeded both state and national levels. He established more than thirty neighborhood watch programs, the Sheriff's Re-entry Program to assist incarcerated individuals in transitioning to a successful life outside of incarceration, and the Sheriff's Family Justice Center G-Men's Group to raise money and community awareness of domestic violence; and
Whereas, held in the highest esteem by his peers, Sheriff Cribb was selected as a recipient of the Strom Thurmond Award for Law Enforcement Excellence in 2016 by an awards committee composed of representatives from the United States Attorney's Office, the Strom Thurmond Foundation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, and other peers; and
Whereas, it would be only fitting and proper to pay tribute to this son of South Carolina by naming a portion of road in the State in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, request that the Department of Transportation name approximately fifteen miles of Pleasant Hill Drive from its intersection with County Line Road to its intersection with North Fraser Street in Georgetown County "A. Lane Cribb Highway" and erect appropriate markers or signs at this location containing the designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
