Beginning Wednesday, Sheriff–elect Eric Watson plans to announce his command staff and leadership team.

For the past several weeks, much effort has been made in reviewing and developing a structure to better utilize the resources of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, according to Watson.

“My campaign promise to the citizens of Bradley County was to create a new spirit for the department and take it in a new direction. With the new organizational steps I will implement, this promise will be achieved,” Watson said Friday.

“Steps that will provide the deputies and support staff with a positive and cohesive work environment and a better utilization of supervisory positions that will provide more deputies to patrol our streets and neighborhoods. Leadership that will, by example, renew our commitment to provide the law enforcement services that a growing Bradley County needs,” he added.

The command staff will consist of professionals who have the ability and experience needed to achieve the goals that he has set for the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, according to Watson.

“I am confident the people I have chosen will contribute greatly as we strive to provide the residents of Bradley County with the most professional and effective law enforcement possible” Watson said.

The public will have the opportunity to meet the new command staff of the BCSO, Aug. 15, at 2 p.m. in the Bradley County Commission room at the Bradley County Courthouse.

Watson will take office Sept. 1.
