Sheriff's Office Announces Deputy of the Year

Each year the Kanawha County sheriff's office recognizes one Deputy Sheriff as the Deputy of the Year, and during a ceremony Thursday the award went to Cpl. John Ratliff, a 9 year veteran of the Kanawha Coounty Sheriff's office. Ratliff received the honor at the Kanawha County Commission meeting and says it was truly an honor to be recognized by his peers:

Supervisors of each patrol shift and subdivision of the agency nominate one person who has gone beyond the scope of duty to help others, worked after-hours to solve a case, or been looked to by coworkers for advice.
