“It really left me speechless and I was just incredibly grateful to my agency, to my colleagues, and to the law enforcement community for supporting this nomination effort,” Hammac said.

Hammac says his biggest heroes goes to his wife and children who are very understanding of his job. Hammac has been with the sheriff’s office since 2004.
