Investigator Farrah Cook is “Officer of the Year”

Laurens County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Farrah Cook was named the Laurens County “Officer of the Year” Tuesday during the annual awards luncheon at the Ridge in Laurens. A report on the event in this week’s Laurens County Advertiser noted Investigator Cook is a ten-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Don Reynolds said, “I was happy to see her win because she deserves it. She is a dedicated, true professional.” The Advertiser reported that Cook paid tribute to the other two nominees for the award, Lt. Heath Copeland of Laurens Police and Lt. Phillip Wicker of Clinton Police. She said, “I know these guys and they work hard, just like it do. They deserve this as much as I do, and they pull their weight every day, just as I do.”

The Officer of the Year banquet is held during National Police Week.
