The evening will combine local community members and leaders in support of Scouting in the Greenville area while honoring Sheriff Johnny Mack Brown with the Ralph Hendricks Award.
Johnny Mack Brown began his law enforcement career in Greenville, South Carolina as a Probation and Parole Officer. This experience served him well when he later became an investigator for the Solicitor’s Office of South Carolina’s 13th Judicial Circuit.
In 1976, he defeated the incumbent Sheriff of Greenville County and took immediate steps to modernize the Sheriff’s Office as a service-oriented agency. In the years that follow Sheriff Brown would be selected as President of the South Carolina Sheriff’s Association and it’s “Sheriff of the Year”, receive the National Sheriff’s Association’s coveted J. Stannard Baker Traffic Safety Award, and the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office would become the first agency in South Carolina to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc.
