Raleigh NC – Last Night I Witnessed Edgecombe County Sheriff James Knight Installed as the North Carolina Sheriff’s Association First Black President


I attended the 87th North Carolina Sheriff’s Association Banquet. Sheriff James Knight was installed as the 1st black president.

The Sheriff held a reception from 6:00 PM until 6:50 PM and the banquet began at 7:00 PM. The event was well represented by people from Edgecombe County.

Sheriff Knight was appointed to the Sheriff post after former Sheriff Phil Ellis retired at the end of 1995. He has been the Sheriff since officially taking the post in 1996 and has been re-elected until the present. He has done a fine job.
