On March 23, 2010, the Westminster Elks’ honored Adams County Sheriff’s Deputy Kenny Sherman as the 2010 Law Enforcement Officer of the Year.

Deputy Sherman has been with the Adams County Sheriff’s Office since 2001. In May 2007, Deputy Sherman was appointed to the rank of Senior Deputy/Technician. He is an instructor in Ground Defense, Pressure Point Control Tactics, Spontaneous Knife Defense Tactics and he is a Field Training Officer. Deputy Sherman’s communication skills and his ability to connect with people make him an exceptional instructor. In 2007, Deputy Sherman was transferred to the Administrative Services Division assigned to the Training Unit. He is an instructor in numerous areas of law enforcement skills training including, driving, firearms, and for the Taser. He is the lead instructor of arrest control and responsible for organizing all training at the Detention Facility.

For the last four years, Deputy Sherman has spent much of his free time coaching his daughter’s softball team, and his son’s football and baseball teams. He is a family man and a man of character and integrity.

Sheriff Doug Darr stated, “Training is imperative in the field of law enforcement and it is critical for the instructor to be able to teach effectively. The skills each deputy learns could determine if they will be going home at the end of a shift or not. Deputy Sherman understands the importance of providing current, effective, and realistic training and he has been instrumental in providing quality training for hundreds of deputies and officers from numerous agencies. Deputy Sherman is committed to providing everyone who attends his training with the skills they need to be prepared for any situation. By sharing his skills through his gift of teaching, he has enhanced hundreds of deputies and officers’ abilities, and there are very few greater or more important contributions that can be made to a deputy or officer.”
