Jefferson County Deputy Darnell Harris



The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office is pleased to announce that Darnell Harris is the Service Deputy of the Month for January 2021.

Deputy Harris has exceeded the expectations of a service deputy for the month of January and is the first service deputy to receive this recognition.

Although he joined the Jefferson County force last year, Harris has been in law enforcement for more than five years.

"It is an honor to receive this recognition," said Harris. "I think it speaks volumes from the supervisors, superiors and administration to recognize the service deputies with this prestigious honor. It provides a good sense of morality in the division that motivates us to keep pushing and to step up and do better."

Service/Warrants Lieutenant Anthony Craig describes Deputy Harris as a person who exhibits a humble spirit.

In January, Harris worked hard to serve 55 out of 60 citizens in Jefferson County through personal service.

"Deputy Harris is a great worker and he works very hard on any assignment that is given to him," said Sergeant Kashonda Thompkins of the Service Division. "He loves what he does and his work performance reflects that every day."

The Service Division is a state mandated service of the sheriff's office. Its purpose and function are to serve and execute the various legal processes issued not only by and for the several non-criminal courts of the state and its subdivisions, but also for the legal community and the general public. The Service Division is also responsible for receiving, maintaining, and tracking all civil process that comes to the Sheriff's Office. These include Orders of Protection, Summonses, Subpoenas, Eviction Notices, and various Writs.

It is because of his dedication to service and his devotion to the community he serves that JCSO is proud to name Darnell Harris as its January Service Deputy of the Month.

The quality of dedication is very important for the agency's long-term success. We look forward to Harris' ability to achieve the highest level of success, and being recognized as Deputy of the Month is just the beginning. We value all our employees and are especially pleased to watch them meet the challenges presented and grow into greater individuals.

It is our sincere hope that you will join us in congratulating Darnell Harris on his accomplishment and in wishing him continued success at our agency.
