Deputies and Corrections Officers to be sworn in, other staff recognized

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office is holding a swearing-in ceremony Monday, December 19, at 10 a.m. at the Public Safety Building, 2030 Arlington Avenue, Duluth. Eight new deputies, plus several corrections officers, will take an oath to serve and be sworn in. These are the final law enforcement professionals hired under the leadership of Sheriff Ross Litman, who is retiring at the end of this year. Among the deputies being sworn in, some were hired in July and are now at the solo patrol stage of training. Others were hired in November and are still working alongside field training officers.

Also being recognized at the ceremony will be new court security staff, 911 emergency communications specialists, clerical staff and chaplains; as well as those who've earned recent
promotions and awards for outstanding service.

The St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for all law enforcement activity in the
unincorporated areas of St. Louis County, as well as several cities. Sheriff’s deputies operate out
of regional offices in Duluth, Virginia and Hibbing, with additional stations in Ely and Mountain
