New Hamilton County Sheriff - WSIL-TV 3 Southern Illinois

New Hamilton County Sheriff

Posted: Updated:

Hamilton County has elected a new Sheriff. 

Current Sheriff's Deputy Tracy Lakin is the new Sheriff Elect. 

Lakin will be sworn in on November 28, 2018. 

He served in the Air Force for more than 21 years, and hopes to bring that leadership experience to this role. 

Lakin mentioned that his call to public service came when his parents took him to Scott Air Force Base to watch the Thunderbirds fly. 

According to Lakin, "I was hooked." 

After spending 21 years in the Air Force, he found his way into the Sheriff's Department, spending the last 8 years as a deputy. He was a dispatcher prior to that. 

Lakin wants the community to know that their office is open 24/7, and that it's his goal to welcome anyone to visit him anytime.
