Wichita County Sheriff's Office Recognizes Outstanding Deputies

The Wichita County Sheriff's Office honored the deputies who protect and serve in our community at the Quarterly Awards Ceremony.

Among the many awards given out, the Life Saving Award was presented to Deputy Ralph Burdick, who saved a woman who attempted to jump off the Llyod Ruby Overpass.

Other awards included Promotions, Certificates of Merit, Certificates of Achievement and Sheriff Commendations.

Three personnel assigned to the Detention Center were also recognized by their facial hair after their participation in No Shave November. People donated money to vote on who had the best beard, and ended up raising $250 that was given to a Wichita County employee who had a family member battling cancer. Corporal Bigham won first place, D.O. Cohen won second place and Corporal Hankins won third place.
