Sheriff Helms working with county to supply more livable wages to deputies


Camden County Sheriff Tony Helms.

Since his reelection, Camden County Sheriff Tony Helms has been looking towards continuous improvement in the department. In an August interview with the Lake Sun, Helms mentioned that in his first four years as Sheriff, he was proud of the work done to achieve raises for the department. With at least four more years to go, Helms is shifting this goal into the next phase. The goal now is to move these wages even further forward.

So far, the raises given to the department have been increased wages awarded by the commission to stay above a minimum wage level. Helms sees this move as commendable, but he wants to increase what his deputies are making to a more livable wage.

“I personally don’t care how we achieve this goal, but it’s going to take somewhere around $500,000 to bring every deputy up to a minimum pay of $40,000,” Helms said.
