Those working at the Montgomery County Courthouse are about to see two new faces guarding courtrooms and conducting prisoner transports. Sheriff Sean P. Kilkenny and Chief Deputy T. Michael Beaty welcomed two new deputies, during a recent swearing-in ceremony at the courthouse in Norristown.
"As we begin to look at another round of applicants next week, we will continue to focus on bringing in the absolute best and motivated candidates to serve our diverse county population," Kilkenny said.
So join me in welcoming the newest deputies.
