Tuscaloosa County Sheriff Ted Sexton announced today that he has accepted the appointment as Division Chief for Homeland Security with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.

Yes, that’s Los Angeles, California… not Lower Alabama!

Sheriff Sexton has served in various law enforcement capacities for some 35 years. He notified Governor Robert Bentley of his intention to become a Supernumerary Sheriff effective as of 11:50 p.m. on March 17, 2013.

In his new capacity, Sexton will be responsible for,

… evaluating the needs, trends, problems and resources associated with the Homeland Security Division and its personnel. He will be tasked with providing appropriate leadership to accomplish goals complementing the mission of a Sheriff’s Department which serves a population of more than ten million people.

Sheriff Sexton will be accountable for dealing with homeland security threats, acts of terrorism and natural disasters that occur within the 4,057 square miles which comprise Los Angeles County.

In the official Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office press release, sent via Nixlepress, Sexton said,

“For the past twenty-two years it has been the high honor of my life to be elected, and re-elected, as Sheriff of Tuscaloosa County. During my six terms in office, the Sheriff’s Office has grown to a staff of over 200 public servants with an annual budget of some Twenty Million ($20,000,000) Dollars. We have been blessed with outstanding personnel and the vision, planning and process which has been the hallmark of our Agency. The success of the Sheriff’s Office is, in my judgment, a tribute to the commitment that these individuals have brought to their work.
