Deputies, K-9s honored for service to Forsyth community



May 31, 2014
CUMMING, Ga. — The dogs barked and panted their appreciation through the crowd's applause.

Forsyth County Sheriff's K-9 dogs Tryst, Sheba and Bogie all served with the department for about seven to nine years and received plaques for their service at a ceremony May 21.

But humans were also honored during the promotions, retirements and commendations celebrated by the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office during the employee recognition event at the Public Safety Complex.

Sheriff's Maj. Matt Hester awarded Deputy Stephen Maddox a commendation for his commitment to the community on and off duty.

Hester said Maddox observed a customer at a pawnshop acting strangely while attempting to purchase a gun.

Off duty, Maddox saw the customer was on the (BOLO) "be on the lookout" list and found the person had recently threatened to shoot up a school.

Maddox received the commendation for acting quickly and in a professional manner on and off duty.

Sgt. Matt Runion presented a commendation to school resource officer Deputy Terri Wright for her continued excellence in her work.

Cpl. Matthew Starr received the medal of merit from Maj. Mark Hoffman.

Starr received the commendation for his efforts to help an elderly citizen who suffered an injury during a fall.

Deputy of the Quarter went to Michael Herbst.

Sgts. Scott Wilson and Sebastian Strano were promoted to lieutenant.

Cpls. Starr and Jason Soles were promoted to sergeant, and Deputy Chad Evers was promoted to sergeant.
