Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell presented with Patriot Award

Posted: Updated:

(02/03/14) - Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell is being honored for his efforts in hiring military veterans.

Sheriff Pickell was presented the Patriot Award Monday afternoon for his dedication to making sure active duty officers got to keep their jobs at the Sheriff's department, while they were deployed.

"I humbly accept this award. It is the men and women in this room, and there are some great women who are not here, and I thank each and everyone of you. Working in the office of the sheriff, we're a para military organization and I seek out veterans," Pickell said.

Sheriff Pickell was nominated by Deputy Ryan Clark, who served in Afghanistan in 2012.

Deputy Clark is an Army staff sergeant.
