Hensley named sheriff

After hearing from three candidates Monday night, the Unicoi County Commission appointed Mike Hensley to serve as interim sheriff for the Unicoi County Sheriff’s Department.

“It’s an honor,” Hensley said after the meeting. “I’ve been here 25 years. We’ve got a good bunch of
men working in our department. We’ve kind of had a cloud on us for the last little bit. We’ve got to get the morale built back up in these officers and get back out here and go to work and that’s what I intend to do. “I plan to be a working sheriff out here seeing to the law enforcement needs of the community.”
