      The end of September ended a 17 year long career for Investigator Roy Ragin with the Prentiss County Sheriff's Office.  He left, taking a position with the Baldwyn Police Department.  Roy will be sorely missed, but will hopefully continue to work with our Department in his capacity in Baldwyn and as well as a Reserve Officer.




    The vacant position left by Investigator Ragin has been filled with a lateral transfer from the patrol division.  Congratulations to Investigator Wesley Graves and look forward to a very production career in Investigations with the Prentiss County Sheriff's Office.
