Cherokee County Law Enforcement held their 13th Annual Law Enforcement Appreciation dinner Monday night at the Broad River Electrical Cooperative in Gaffney.
It featured not just deputies, but police, courthouse workers, probation agents and 911 operators.
One of the highlights of the annual dinner is the Solicitor's Award for Law Enforcement Excellence. What makes that award so special is that a committee of local police officers nominate and choose the winner.
This year, it is Gaffney Police Capt. Chris Skinner.
"It really feels good, it is an hour. There are a lot of other offices who deserve it too, but I am honored to get it," Skinner said after receiving the award.
Skinner oversees the investigations and crime scene unit for Gaffney Police. The solicitor says his hard work and dedication made him a strong choice.
