Shelby County Jailer Bobby Waits has been elected president of the Kentucky Jailers Association (KJA) for the third time.
That's quite an honor considering there are 74 jailers in Kentucky, said Marshall Long, executive director of the KJA.
"He's one of the better jailers in the state," Long said. "He does an excellent job and he runs a good, tight ship. He works hard and he's well-respected by other jailers."
Waits acknowledged that while heading up the association is indeed an honor, the position involves a lot of traveling back and forth to Frankfort.
