Gary Medlin
Operations Captain
The main duty of my position as Patrol Captain includes managing the supervisors who oversee a total of 55 officers. I direct and coordinate the Patrol Division, School Resource Officers (SROs) and Canine Unit. That involves conducting meetings with shift commanders to discuss problems, operational methods and requirements. Additionally, I hold counseling sessions with subordinates, recommend specialized schools, respond to inquiries and complaints, investigate grievances when warranted and compile monthly statistics. I also ensure staff compliance with SCSO policies and procedures.

Accreditation also falls under my supervision.
Accreditation provides the Agency with 464 professional standards that are required to be met on an annual basis. The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) verifies the agency's compliance with these standards every three years. The Sheriff's Office recently successfully completed its seventh reaccreditation process. I supervise the Accreditation Manager who oversees the Accreditation process.

I truly enjoy working with the Patrol Division, SROs Canine Officers and the Accreditation Manager and am proud of their accomplishments. These men and women work very hard and are a close-knit family. I look forward to continuing this working relationship in the future.
