Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd has garnered national recognition as “Sheriff of the Year” – a title awarded to him by the Major County Sheriffs of America (MCSA).
Grady was honored as the first recipient of the award. The award is named after former Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens, who served as MCSA President but passed away after a decade-long battle with cancer.
“I served with Sheriff Hutchens on the MCSA board. She was a consummate professional and she is dearly missed,” Judd said in a Facebook post.
The MCSA is comprised of the 113 largest sheriff’s offices in the country.
