The Moore Republican Women's Club (mrwnc.org/) held their monthly meeting in the St. Andrews Room of the Pinehurst Club beginning at 11:30 AM on Monday, April 8, 2013. MRW Chair Lane Bergstrom presided. The featured speaker was outgoing Moore County Sheriff Lane Carter. Also attending was our new Moore County Sheriff, Neil Godfrey. Sheriff Carter will retire effective May 1, and Sheriff Godfrey will be sworn in that same day at the new law enforcement facilities in Carthage.
Sheriff Carter presented some interesting crime and law enforcement statistics for Moore County. He also discussed the unique role and duties of a county sheriff -- as well as his views regarding the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution.
