Deputy named Greene County Officer of the Year

GREENE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - The Arkansas Attorney General's Office has named the Greene County Officer of the Year.

Greene County Sheriff's Deputy Ken Womack was selected to represent Greene County and will go to Camp Robinson in Little Rock for the 2016 Arkansas Law Enforcement Summit on Oct. 5.

There, Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge will recognize officers from each Arkansas county and announce the 2016 Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer of the Year.

Sheriff David Carter nominated Womack, who has 24 years of experience in law enforcement, earlier this year.

"In the 5 years that Deputy Womack has been with us, he has proven himself time and time again to be a stellar, dependable officer, taking extra initiative to solve cases," Carter said. "Deputy Womack has been instrumental in capturing more burglary suspects and retrieving more stolen property than any other officer. He has never, and would never leave a job undone, even if that means coming in on his days off- which he has done on numerous occasions without complaint."

Lieutenant Brad Toms of the San Bernadino County Sheriff's Department will be the keynote speaker at the summit.
