Changes Start with New Uniforms

Houston County’s new sheriff says he's making some changes starting with their uniforms.

Recently-installed Sheriff, Andy Hughes says he plans on taking the deputy uniform to a more traditional style; dressed in brown, wearing the traditional sheriff star as the badge.

However, he says, that's just one of the changes to come to the office. “Our first and primary goal is going to be to provide the most professional law enforcement service that we can for the citizens of Houston County,” he explained. “We're going to look and see if we need to increase any personnel, fix any programs that are already in place or do we need to implement some new programs.”
