The S.C. Sheriff’s Association (SCSA) named Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews as its 2014 Sheriff of the Year on Thursday. Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott nominated Matthews. “Sheriff Matthews has restructured the agency to place more emphasis on improving response time and greater accessibility of deputies to the citizens he is sworn to serve,” Lott said in a statement released to the press Thursday morning.
