With Byrd gone, Chief Deputy, Ken Broadus, will be the Acting Sheriff. Broadus says that he hopes to restore the public’s confidence in the Sheriff's Office. Broadus says he is willing to do whatever has to be done to bring task forces together. He says, “We're going to take care of the things that we need to be taking care of. The law enforcement aspects are really simple. When people violate, we have to take care of it. We have to build our cases and take care of the things that have to be done. There aren’t going to be any significant changes, other than I’m going to make sure that we’re coordinating with the local police departments and all other law enforcement agencies in the county and anywhere else that we need to and building some bridges back that were damaged previously.” Broadus says he plans on running for the interim position. Jackson County Supervisors hope to appoint an interim within a couple of weeks.
