Columbia Northeast American Legion Post No. 182 presented Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) Investigator Justin Dill with a special law enforcement award for “outstanding public service.” Dill received the award Feb. 8 at the post’s annual public safety awards dinner at Fort Jackson.

“Justin Dill has proven himself as a tireless and tenacious investigator who has a reputation for hard work and going the extra mile when necessary to solve a crime,” said Sheriff Jim Matthews. “He is respected by his peers as well as his supervisors.”

Dill is a Kershaw County native who began his law enforcement career at the KCSO in October of 2005. Prior to that, he served two years at Kershaw County’s Central Dispatch. Dill is a graduate of Camden High School and Central Carolina Technical School in Sumter. He is married to the former Sara Wooldridge and has a 17-month-old son, Grayson.

Dill was one of several law enforcement professionals in the Midlands honored for their “outstanding public service benefiting our community, state and nation.”
