“During my law enforcement career, I have worked for six different sheriffs; and I must say, Sheriff Hencratt is the most dedicated sheriff I have ever seen. He is a people’s Sheriff; a family man; and is willing to address issues in order to make our community a better place to live.” ~ Assistant Sheriff Johnston
