Jones County Sheriff's Department honors fallen officers


On Friday, more than a two dozen Jones County citizens gathered in the Jones County Circuit Court for the annual Peace Officer's Memorial Day Ceremony.

Supreme Court Justice Mike Randolph was today's guest speaker. Randolph called law enforcement across the country his heroes. Jones County Sheriff Alex Hodge says this is a day filled with emotions and a day that will always be remembered.

Sheriff Hodge also presented the families of Randy Chancellor and Tony Stiles with flowers. Chancellors was killed by a drunk driver in 2001. Stiles was seriously injured in hostage stand off last summer.
