New sheriff in town in Butler County

New Butler County sheriff hard at work on second day of job

BUTLER COUNTY, AL (WSFA) - Tuesday marked the second day on the job for new Butler County Sheriff Danny Bond. He was sworn in on Monday.

Sheriff Bond spent the last 16-years with Greenville police before defeating incumbent Kenny Harden in the November elections.

Sheriff Bond says he’s already made some personnel changes he believes better fits his administration. The sheriff says he plans to tackle many outstanding traffic warrants right away.

“We have a lot of outstanding warrants we need to deal with. I don’t know if the county has done a warrant amnesty program like the city of Greenville did but we will try that this year, try to help folks get some of these warrants out of the way without costing so much money," he said.

Sheriff Bond says he’s worked 29 years overall in law enforcement.
