On Saturday March 25, 2017, Captain Litchfield and Captain Crisp from Clay County Sheriff's Office had the distinct privilege of attending the North Carolina Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) 2017 Employer Recognition Banquet in Greensboro, NC. Cody Harris, a Detention Officer at the Sheriff’s Office, is also with the North Carolina National Guard. He nominated the Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center for going above and beyond in supporting him in his duties as a guardsman.
The Above and Beyond Award is presented by the ESGR State Committees to recognize employers at the local level who have gone above and beyond the legal requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) by providing their Guard and Reserve employees additional, non-mandated benefits such as differential or full pay to offset lost wages, extended health benefits, and other similar benefits.
Captain Litchfield said it was an honor to represent Sheriff Davis at this event and we are grateful for the service of Cody Harris and other guardsman like him. Captain Crisp also said it was an honor to be present with Officer Harris at the banquet; and for being recognized for doing what he feels like everyone should do in support of the Guard and Reserve.
As a guardsman, Office Harris could be called on to deploy at a moment’s notice. He spent time last year on the coast of North Carolina helping with hurricane relief and will be deployed later this year to Cuba for a full year.
