Coffee County Sheriff Dave Sutton was inducted as President of the Alabama Sheriffs Association during the 2018 Winter Conference held January 21-24, at The Embassy Suites Hotel in Montgomery, Alabama.
I would like to start by saying how humbled and grateful I am to have been elected by my colleagues to serve as the President of the Alabama Sheriffs Association for the upcoming year. In keeping with the longstanding tradition of the great presidents before me, I plan to continue to operate the Association with honesty, integrity, and transparency that the great citizens of the State of Alabama have come to expect from our Association.
The world has changed so much over the last few years, but our commitment to our counties and our state to provide safe and secure communities has not. The men and women who serve in law enforcement today face many challenges, but we have never put more qualified deputies in the field as we have serving today. As the President, I am proud to see deputies working for Sheriffs saving lives and property of other Alabamians.
The Alabama Sheriffs Association values our relationships with all our working partners across the state and its many Law Enforcement Agencies. Together those who wear the badge and put their lives on the line every day are heroes, plain and simple.
I believe all Sheriffs need to work together so our voices are heard and will continue to be heard at the State Capital during the legislative session so as to continue making a difference for Sheriffs and their counties. There is no other networking opportunity better than the one with the Alabama Sheriffs Association. As your President, I look forward to the challenges for the upcoming year and keeping the Association moving forward in a positive, professional and productive manner.
In closing, I want to thank each of you for your continued support to our Sheriffs' offices across the state and I look forward to serving the citizens of Alabama.
May God bless and keep you safe.
Sheriff Dave Sutton President, Alabama Sheriffs Association Sheriff of Coffee County, Alabama
