There's a new Sheriff in town

Posted: Updated:

Newly elected Hinds County officials were sworn in this morning, including new sheriff Tyrone Lewis. Senior circuit judge Tomie Green presided over the ceremony.

After taking the oath, Sheriff Lewis talked about changes.

"People voted for a change and naturally I'm going to require personnel changes" said Sheriff Lewis. "Any changes we should look for, we will make that available on day one. Presently our organizational chart will include command staff and people we will be using up front."

The ceremony was held at the Hinds County Courthouse. Newly elected supervisor Kenneth stokes wasn't at today's ceremony. He will be sworn in at a later date.
