Recently the Mississippi Crimestoppers Conference was held in Biloxi.
The photo was taken when The Prentiss County Sheriff's Office was
recognized with an award for for being the Most Supportive Law
Enforcement Agency in the Northern Half of the State. This award was
presented to our Department at the Awards Ceremony the final day of
the conference and was accepted by Chief Deputy Derrick Pruitt and
Deputy Bob Tolar. Sheriff Tolar was unable to attend the Conference
due to other commitments. We are very proud of this award and believe
that Crime Stoppers is a vital link in our Crime fighting efforts.
Crimestoppers of Northeast Mississippi is based out of Tupelo and
Tupelo Police Department serves as the host. Recently we were called
upon to contribute assistance in the form of providing someone that
would help coordinate things within the three counties that border
Prentiss County; Alcorn and Tishomingo. Ken Shackleford, who is the
Chief of my Reserve Deputies recently retired from his Insurance
Business and I believed would do a great job, doing what they were
asking of us to do. Ken took on this Position and represents Prentiss
County in an outstanding manner. Since his retirement he has also
volunteered to help with monitoring Sex Offenders in Prentiss County
as well has managing a link on our webpage concerning these Sex
Offenders. Ken wasn't able to attend the conference due to recent
Knee Surgery. Our website is www.prentisscountymssheriff.com.
