Montgomery County Sheriff John Fuson: The new Sheriff in town: Part 2

 

Montgomery County Sheriff's DepartmentClarksville, TN –  Sheriff John Fuson knows he is following in the footsteps of a very successful and popular public figure in the late Norman Lewis. Norman Lewis commanded a very loyal and dedicated department of law enforcement professionals. His reputation is something John Fuson knows all too well.

“Sheriff Lewis was a great man,” said Fuson. “He did things the way he thought was best for this department.  He was good to me, and fair, and I learned a lot from him.  He had a way of doing things that was his style, and people may not have always agreed with it, but he knew what he was doing.  He once asked me what my goals were and I told him, “to be sitting where you sit.””
