By Anna Coates
Copiah Sheriff Byron Swilley hosted his first “Meet and Greet” breakfast at the Safe Room in Gallman February 1.
Over 50 enjoyed fellowship and breakfast, engaging with Sheriff Swilley and members of his staff, along with Representative Greg Holloway, and Mayors Sally Garland of Crystal Springs and Kenneth Ramsey of Hazlehurst. Hazlehurst High School Student Government Association members served sausage biscuits, donuts and orange juice, compliments of Burger King in Hazlehurst and State Farm in Crystal Springs.
“We are continuing our quarterly Chat with the Sheriff meetings where we can address your concerns and suggestions. The Breakfast gatherings are for you to put faces and names with your nearest law enforcement personnel. They are the ones who answer your calls and give assistance. We depend on the help you provide –many times you offer vital clues in our work. Be on the lookout for the announcement of our next Breakfast gathering soon.”
