GEORGIA (WTOC) - Georgia Senators Johnny Isakson and David Perdue are applauding the Senate confirmation of two longtime law enforcement officers to fill two U.S. Marshal vacancies in Georgia.
John Cary Bittick, of Forsyth, was confirmed for the Middle District of Georgia, and retired Garden City Police Chief David Lyons was confirmed as U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of the peach state.
Lyons has more than four decades of law enforcement experience and served as a military police commissioned officer. He was named Police Chief of the Year by the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police in 2016.
