Last week, Sheriff John Root and members of the command staff attended the 87th annual Kentucky Sheriff's Conference in Owensboro, Kentucky.
During that time, Sheriff Root was once again elected to serve on the Kentucky Sheriff's Association board of directors. This will be Sheriff Root's third consecutive year sitting on the board.
Sheriff Root stated--" it is an honor to serve on the board and to be involved in crucial decision-making that will not only affect the Laurel County Sheriff's office but will also affect Sheriff's office's statewide."
Sheriff Root first began sitting on the board in 2015 and his new term will begin January 2017.
