Lenn Wood is officially sworn in as Sheriff Friday by Probate Judge Mary Cranford as colleagues, friends and supporters filled the Historic Coweta County Courthouse for the ceremony.

Sheriff Wood thanked former Sheriff Mike Yeager for his leadership and appointing Wood as Chief Deputy prior to Yeager leaving office.

"I look forward to serving the citizens…now and into the future,” Wood said. "While I may be interim for the next few months, I intend to devote my time and efforts in leading the sheriff's office into the future, beyond the next several months.”

Wood kicked off his election campaign at the Historic Train Depot Thursday night.
