During today’s session of the Ohio House of Representatives, State Representatives Gary Scherer (R-Circleville) and Bill Hayes (R-Harrison Twp.) presented a House resolution to Sheriff Dwight Radcliff, the nation’s longest-serving sheriff.

Radcliff served as Pickaway County Sheriff since 1964 and previously served as a deputy under his father, Sheriff Charles Radcliff. He was awarded the 2012 National Sheriff Association’s Executive Directors Award, which honors individuals who have made outstanding contributions to law enforcement and are dedicated role models. He served as president of the NSA from 1986 to 1987 and currently serves on the board as NSA’s corporate representative.

Additionally, Radcliff received the J. Stannard Baker Award for Traffic Safety, as well as the Community Leadership Award from Ohio Christian University.

“My family and Dwight’s family have been friends for all of his 48 years of service,” said Rep. Scherer. “I am proud to call him a friend and appreciate his unparalleled service to our community.”

“I am proud to honor Sheriff Radcliffe for his service to Pickaway County. He has worked diligently for our community and has, without a doubt, left a lasting, positive legacy,” Rep. Hayes said.

Radcliff has announced that he will retire following the completion of his current term as sheriff.
