Quarterly chats with Copiah sheriff
Copiah County Sheriff Byron Swilley hosted the first of four Chat with the Sheriff meetings at meet-and-greet breakfast last month at the Safe Room in Gallman.
More than 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.
The quarterly Chat with the Sheriff meetings provide a venue in which members of the public can raise concerns and offer suggestions. The gatherings introduce the faces associated with the names of law enforcement personnel who answer calls and provide assistance and depend on public assistance many times for vital clues that drive their successful work.
The next breakfast chat event will be scheduled in the spring.
