Pittsboro, NC - Cited as "a man with vision," Chatham County Sheriff Richard Webster has been elected second vice president of the N.C. Sheriffs' Association for the upcoming 2009-2010 year.

The election puts Webster in line of succession to be elevated to president of the association in two years. Also at the association's 87th Annual Training Conference held in Raleigh, Rockingham County Sheriff Sam Page was elected first vice president and Edgecombe County Sheriff James Knight was elected president.

Webster previously served as chaplain of the West and vice chairman, sergeant of arms for the Sheriffs' Association.

"Sheriff Webster has been fantastic to work since he was elected Sheriff in 2002. I look forward to working side by side with him in the future years," Page said.

"Sheriff Webster is going to be a tremendous asset to the association," Knight said. "He is a man with vision and this organization will greatly benefit because of his leadership."

"I am honored that my fellow sheriffs had the confidence to elect me to this position. I look forward to serving with Sheriff Knight and Sheriff Page. I will do everything in my power to represent all sheriffs in the state with dignity and respect," Webster said.

Webster is a member of the Domestic Preparedness and Readiness Committee, Legislative and Training Committee, Resolutions and Recommendations Committee, and a member of the N.C. Police Corp Board. Appointed by House Speaker Joe Hackney to the N.C. Domestic Violence Commission, Webster, has spoken to a legislative House select committee on sex offender registrations laws.
