DARLINGTON - Over the past quarter century, Lafayette County Sheriff Scott Pedley has strived to bring the same level of empathy and kindness that previous sheriffs have brought to the office and foster a trust between the community and law enforcement. "I hope my time here has established a culture here that we are truly servants to the people," he said. "It can't be like this," Pedley said, pounding his fists together to represent the community and law enforcement.
