Barrow County Sheriff’s deputy Jamie Holloway was named 2009 Deputy Sheriff of the Year by the Kiwanis Club on November 12. The award is presented to public safety professionals in recognition of outstanding achievement.
Holloway has been employed by the Sheriff’s office for five years. He is currently assigned to the traffic unit under the supervision of Sgt. Ryan Sears.
“Jamie is a hard worker who really cares about this community,” Sears said. “He's an exceptionally good man and a great deputy. I think he is very deserving of this award.”
Holloway said he was surprised by the award.
“Receiving this award is a great honor,” he said.
Sheriff Jud Smith said the selection of Holloway for the award was an easy choice.
“Deputy Holloway not only helps to keep our roadways safe on the job, he's a fine man off the job,” Smith said. “He is the father of four children and serves as a mentor to two other children in the Barrow County School system. We want to extend our appreciation to his wife, Kay, and their four children for sharing this terrific man with our department and our community.”
