Quiet. Steady. Trustworthy.
Those are just some of the attributes DeWitt County Sheriff Jered Shofner gives to his new Chief Deputy, Rob Spickard, who was promoted to the position earlier this month.

Sheriff Shofner says Spickard has the trust of his coworkers and is a steady force in the office.
According to Sheriff Shofner, Spickard enters the Chief Deputy position at a time when the department is very thin staffed, which means he will take on a lot more responsibility.
Sheriff Shofner says Spickard's background is impressive. He was a medic in the National Guard and is a fourth generation law enforcement officer. Additionally, Spickard has extensive training that makes him qualified.
