Chatham Co. Sheriff's forum hosted by 'Concerned Citizens of Savannah'

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The community organization "Concerned Citizens of Savannah" brought the candidates running for Chatham County Sheriff together for a forum.

All five candidates took questions from people in the audience about a wide range of issues, including the county-wide crime issue and keeping the community safe.

"It's very important that our community be enlightened with the situations that are going on currently in Savannah. So it's imperative that the people who serve us, who get our precious vote, are people who can represent us in the best of all of our interests,” said Yolandra Shipp, Concerned Citizens of Savannah.

That special election is coming up on March 1st.

Roy Harris was appointed sheriff after long time Sheriff Al St Lawrence passed away back in November.
