The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Foundation (KCSF) Board of Directors invites the public to submit nominations for the “2017 Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office Deputy of the Year Award.” The award recognizes a KCSO deputy who exhibits exemplary service to our county and citizens in the current calendar year. The KCSO winner will receive a $1,000 prize funded by anonymous supporters of the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office and the KCSF.  

“Our KCSO deputies risk their lives every day for us,” said Steve Zobel, Chair of the KCSF Board. “This annual award is a great way to recognize their service.  I would like to personally thank our anonymous donors for adding a cash prize to this award.”   

Citizens are invited to nominate a KCSO sworn officer for the award. Nominations can also be made by those within the KCSO who know of their co-workers efforts to go above and beyond the call of duty. A winner will be announced in December. 

“Being a law enforcement officer has never been more difficult,” said Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews.  “The job is dangerous and our deputies know every decision could be critiqued in the media.  This annual award is a good way to tell our law enforcement officers, ‘We support you!’”

Last year’s winner was Deputy Jarrett Greenway. Greenway invests heavily in our community. For example, in 2016 Deputy Greenway prepared, organized and conducted special presentations at all three high schools in Kershaw County to warn teenagers about the dangers of drinking and driving and texting and driving.  He did so on his personal time and without compensation.  

“We are looking for public input for our 2017 honoree,” said Zobel.  “We hope people will take the time to nominate one of the men and women who serve and protect us.”

To nominate someone for the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office Deputy of the Year Award please send a one-page typed or written entry explaining:

Nominations must be received by Friday, Nov. 24 at 5 pm.  Mail or email them to: Kershaw County Sheriff’s Foundation, c/o Mr. Steve Zobel, P.O. Box 664, Camden, SC 29021 or
