Public service has always been, and continues to be, a noble calling, especially so for those who put their lives at risk in service to their community and fellow citizens. Southampton County Sheriff J.B. “Jack” Stutts has done just that for nearly four decades.

The two-term sheriff announced earlier this week that he is retiring at the end of this year. And when his work is done, he will leave behind a staff that is well trained, respected in the community and prepared to continue his legacy of service to the community.

Jack Stutts has served his community well for nearly 40 years. His retirement is well earned and deserved. Thank you, Sheriff, for all that you have given to Southampton County. Ours is a better place to live because of the mark you leave on it.
