Clark County Sheriff Berl Perdue was sworn in as president of the Kentucky Sheriffs Association at the organization’s annual conference last Thursday in Bowling Green.

“I am humbled and honored to be elected by my fellow sheriffs and peers,” wrote Perdue in a post on the sheriffs office’s social media pages. “Thank you to the police officers, sheriffs and deputies who have put their faith in me to represent them. I will not let you down!”

Perdue is also the president of the Kentucky Fraternal Order of Police and is the first person to simultaneously hold both positions, according to the social media post.

According to its website, the Kentucky Sheriffs Association exists to encourage different social or charitable activities, continued education in law enforcement techniques, and to do any and all things to fight criminal activity.
