Second litter control officer to be added July 1

A second Oconee sheriff’s officer will be in place by this summer in the seemingly never-ending effort to help eradicate the county’s litter problem. He’s Corp. Irvin Reyes. Sheriff Mike Crenshaw says Reyes is being promoted July 1 to litter officer “assigned solely to environmental services.” Crenshaw explains, “Having one deputy balancing his time between litter enforcement and working inmates picking up trash was simply not enough to keep up with the calls for service in this area. I believe we can be more effective with one deputy working the enforcement of litter complaints and one deputy working the sheriff’s inmate litter crew.”
