Sheriff's Office presents awards for Deputy/Jailer of the Year

Detective Brandon Long was named Deputy of the Year for 2020 and Jailer Corbin Sheets was named Jailer of the Year for 2020. These awards are voted on by their peers, and was well deserved by both recipients. They were presented at the Sheriff's Office Christmas Party last week. Their hard work and dedication has been a shining example of what our Sheriff's Office strives for.

The Sheriff's Office also presented four letters of commendation for actions taken during a recent welfare check. In September, dispatch received a call from a man who was threatening suicide by gun, and warned that he would shoot anyone who tried to stop him. Heber Springs Officers located the man's vehicle, and with the assistance of Corporal Teel, Deputy Burger, Deputy C. Harrison, and Deputy Taylor, were able to take the man into custody without incident or injury to anyone. Their professionalism, bravery, and action in the face of danger earned them a letter of commendation from one of the Heber Springs Police Officers, which also prompted a letter of commendation from the Sheriff's Office.

Please join us as we say congratulations to these deputies and jailer for their continued dedication and service.

We'd also like to say a special thank you to the Cleburne County Republican Women's Committee and Sonic for donating a monetary prize to the Deputy and Jailer of the Year. And to each of the sponsors who helped make the Christmas Party a success this year: Red River Dodge, Eagle Bank, Sonic, Heber Springs Rotary, Cowboy Chevrolet, First National Bank, Cleburne County Republican Women's Committee, Chad and Rachelle Evans, Tina Moore Allstate, and Perry Gooch.

Thanks, and congrats!

-Sheriff Chris Brown
