Good Job Aiken County

Good Job Aiken County Sheriff's Office. Sheriff Michael Hunt has improved that department drastically since taking office and they continue making great strides each and every day. Officers know that he has very high expectations and they are held accountable. Likewise, he is by their side when needed and doesn't mind lending a helping hand or getting involved.
