Sheriff McMahon works on reorganization within sheriff's office

It was a day of promotions and reorganization for the New Hanover County Sherriff's Office. Sheriff Ed McMahon eliminated one lieutenant's position and created a new colonel position. The reorganization will provide more attention for several divisions within the sheriff's office and save nearly $80,000. As part of the reorganization, six deputies were promoted, including Rhonda Smith who became the new chief deputy. “Before I was over Patrol and Detective divisions, now it will be over Support Services as well as Detention. I served as a captain over both of those, so it's like coming home,” said Chief Deputy Smith. Sheriff McMahon said the reorganization will mean more responsibility for many people throughout the sheriff's office. The sheriff spent the afternoon outlining goals for his office with the newly promoted employees.
