Sheriffs' Association honors Johnson

October 03, 2004

The Maryland Sheriffs' Association presented Anne Arundel County Sheriff George F. Johnson IV with an award last month for his work on public safety initiatives and legislation.

The accolade, presented by the group's president, Washington County Sheriff Charles F. Mades, was given Sept. 8 at the MSA's annual conference and banquet in Ocean City.

Johnson, a 32-year veteran of the county police force, said he was humbled to receive such an honor from the state's law enforcement community.

"For my peers, my fellow sheriffs, to single me out is a tremendous feeling," he said.

As chairman of the MSA's legislative committee since 1995, Johnson has worked to create and improve laws that protect citizens and police officers.
