County dedicates monument to fallen corrections officers

Shelby County has only had two fallen law enforcement officers, and former jailer Bobby Waits thinks it is time they were recognized.

Waits and a group of county officials were on hand to dedicate a memorial on the Shelby County Detention Center in front of jail employees and family members of the fallen officers.

“This is something that needed to be done a long time ago,” Waits said. “It’s been a long time coming, and certainly both these guys are very deserving.”
