Sheriff Donald L. Smith takes time from his busy schedule to talk with Chip Crabill and share with the community his goals as sheriff of Augusta County. A deputy for 12 years prior to being elected, Donald began his career in law enforcement with the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office Ride-Along Program while still in high school. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Blue Ridge Community College with an Associate Degree in Applied Sciences and a Major in Administration of Justice. While working as a patrol deputy he earned his Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Liberty University.
Since being elected sheriff, Donald has assigned deputies to tackle the drug problem that affects every family in the region. He is strengthening the integrity of the Sheriff’s Office with audits to achieve accreditation. And he is expanded community outreach by building an online presence. You can connect with the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office on Facebook and look forward to a rebuilt website that will let you quickly and securely contact a deputy.
