Jim Hammond to take over as Chattanooga sheriff

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — With former Sheriff Billy Long having been arrested, removed from office and pleaded guilty to numerous criminal offenses, the people of Hamilton County stepped up this week to elect a new sheriff of integrity, experience and professionalism. The overwhelming choice was Jim Hammond, a former chief deputy sheriff who more recently had been training law enforcement officers in the Middle East.

Mr. Hammond's victory came by a large margin over some good opponents.

We look forward to the full restoration of honest and effective law enforcement under an able new sheriff. Mr. Hammond should be able to provide exactly what the sheriff's office obviously needs to restore public confidence.
