“I realize that everyone does not have the ability or desire to become an honorary member of the South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association,” said Baxley. “Rest assured that your ability to join this reputable organization will not impact the level of service you receive from my office. I would simply ask you to consider joining the South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association as an honorary member if you have the means and are so inclined.”
