Sheriff Ricky Adam honored law enforcement personnel for courageous and heroic acts of service at the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office Award Ceremony held on March 2nd. Among those honored were Diamondhead Police Department Sgt. Darrell Hughes. Sgt. Hughes received the Sheriff’s Star Ribbon for his selfless acts of bravery that ended a high speed chase and led to the apprehension of three people accused of strong armed robbery in Long Beach on April 26, 2015.
