DeWitt County Sheriff Jered Shofner will not seek re-election after his term expires in 2018 and will step away from the office.
In an announcement made over the weekend on Facebook, Sheriff Shofner indicated he will not seek re-election and will step away from the Sheriff's office once his term expires. The Sheriff says it's just time for something new after 30 years in law enforcement.
The Sheriff calls it an honor to serve the DeWitt County community but says law enforcement has become a difficult job but knows he leaves the community in good hands with the staff of the Sheriff's office.
Sheriff Shofner will be on the WHOW morning show Thursday morning. Tune in on-air or online at dewittdailynews.com.
