Ingram fills Batten's seat on Sheriff's Training and Standards Commission


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Brunswick County Sheriff John Ingram is filling the seat on the NC Sheriff's Education and Training and Standards Commission left empty when former Columbus County Sheriff Chris Batten retired.

Batten stepped down earlier this month to work full time for Training and Standards. That meant he could no longer hold a seat on the Commission.

Ingram will take over the the District 7 seat, as voted on by the ten sheriffs in the district, which includes Brunswick, Columbus, New Hanover, Cumberland, Carteret, Onslow, Sampson, Pender, Robeson and Bladen Counties.

With his already inflated ego, this will make him even more unbearable to work for. Poor deputies.


Just what the state needs - the crooked helping others learn to be crooked.

Bye Bye Batten

Thank God Columbus County can finally move forward with an HONEST chief law enforcement officer who is not controlled by political parties, bankers and who you know. Under Batten crime has grown 1400 percent in Columbus County. Columbus County Sheriffs Office was sued 40 percent more than under previous sheriffs and a fair share of scandals at the CCSO has surfaced all under Batten's watch. Hatcher is a good honest man and it is ironic he worked under Batten. But we will move on. Thank God.
