On Monday, Dec. 31, after 21 years with the Sheriff's Office, life-long Catoosa County resident Gary Sisk was sworn in as the agency's new head lawman, taking the place of long-time sheriff Phil Summers.
“It was really a great day,” Sisk said. “The buildup to Jan. 1, 2013, has been an exciting and emotional time. All the hard work we put into obtaining this goal was finally coming to a head, and I have a lot to be grateful for.”
Sisk, a graduate of Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School, has been second in command of the agency for the past 10 years.
