Smith County Sheriff's Department Promotes Two

The changes in the Smith County Sheriff's Department continue. Sheriff J.B. Smith has announced that Major Bobby Garmon will be promoted to chief deputy, replacing the retiring Johnny Beddingfield.

"I feel really grateful that Sheriff Smith has trust and honors in me," Garmon said. "I feel like we have a good staff in place."

Also promoted is officer Mike Lusk, who will go from Captain to Major.

"We deal with a lot of negatives," Lusk said, "And what I hope will take place is a positive attitude towards that enforcement and to move forward as best we can."

Sheriff Smith complemented Garmon and Lusk on their years of service, loyalty and leadership in the Sheriff's Department.
