Pete Barnes Promoted to Corporal

 From Sheriff Smith:       

Effective this date, the Levy County Sheriff’s Office takes great pride in promoting Deputy Willie Pete Barnes, to the rank of Corporal in the Patrol Division.  This decision was based on his distinguished service to our office and his unwavering commitment to excellence in the field of law enforcement.  We look forward to great things from him in his career at the Levy County Sheriff’s Office.

Corporal Barnes began his career in the United States Military and served our Army with honor for 13 years. He then dedicated 16 years to the Florida Department of Corrections before transferring to the Levy County Sheriff's Office as a patrol deputy in July of 2000. Since his assignment in the patrol division, Corporal Barnes has excelled in all facets of Law Enforcement. Corporal Barnes currently is assigned as a K-9 officer within the Patrol Division. 

Major Evan Sullivan stated, "with his drive and determination; his dedication to Law Enforcement and the citizens of Levy County, Corporal Barnes is an example for all to follow."
