*In The Line Of Duty* GA - Rest In Peace Long County Sheriff's Department Deputy Sheriff Sheldon Whiteman, 43, who was killed In The Line Of Duty during an early morning vehicle pursuit. End Of Watch: January 23, 2020

(first of two True Blues killed in the line of duty this day - We will post the second on Friday. Our prayers for all)

#SayHisName -Deputy/Brother Sheldon Whiteman - not just "RIP" or a run of ridiculous emojis. When you SAY HIS NAME, you will REMEMBER HIS NAME and A HERO REMEMBERED ... NEVER DIES

On Thursday, January 23, 2020, 0300hrs(local), a Ludowici police officer spotted a motorist running stop signs in the city.

Deputy Whiteman joined the chase on Highway 57 in Long County.

Deputy Whiteman lost control of his vehicle and crashed into the wood line about 100 yards in.

Deputy Whiteman was transported to Liberty Regional Medical Center.

The suspect vehicle was eventually located McIntosh County. A manhunt is ongoing for the suspect. Liberty County Sheriff Steve Sikes said the department’s tracking dog Charlie was able to pick up the suspects scent inside a nearby wood line but the scent ended on a dirt road where it is believed the suspect may have been picked up by someone. We will update once located.

Sadly, Deputy Sheriff Sheldon Whiteman succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced shortly after arrival.

Before coming to the Long County Sheriff's Office in September of 2019, Brother Sheldon served as a Deputy Sheriff for the Chatham County Sheriff's Office beginning in December 2014.

Deputy Whiteman leaves behind his beloved wife, three children, and families. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the families, both of blood and of Blue, to all who assisted, and to all who knew this True Blue Hero. -from all of us at True Blue Warriors
