The Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office added two new deputies with the recent graduation of Deputies Billy Anderson and Corey Akins from the Regional Police Academy, Session 244, Savannah, Ga.
“During the 11 weeks of extensive law enforcement training, Deputies Anderson and Akins were exposed to course topics covering Georgia criminal law, peace officer liability, criminal procedure, report writing, traffic enforcement, defense tactics, and firearms along with several others,” said Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson. “At the end of each training session, cadets were tested and required to successfully pass exams.”
Both Deputy Anderson and Deputy Akins “scored very well on all exams,” he said. “(Billy) Anderson completed the Academy with the highest academic average among the cadets, with a 96.75 percent.”
Billy Anderson is the son of the sheriff and his wife, Becky, while Corey Akins is the son of Bulloch County Sheriff Ed Akins and his wife Lyn.
Deputy Anderson is assigned to the Road Patrol Division, while Akins is assigned to the Court Services Unit, Sheriff Anderson said.
“I express great pleasure in having Deputy Anderson and Deputy Akins on staff and look forward to many years of their service to citizens of Bulloch County,” he said.
