Hudson Earns National Certification

LAURENS, SC - Major Chris Hudson of the Laurens County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) is one of only 368 jail professionals nationwide to receive the national designation of Certified Jail Manager through the Jail Manager Certification Commission (JMCC) by authority of the American Jail Association (AJA).

The certification was achieved through the successful completion of a rigid experiential background application and an intensive four-hour electronic examination. Certification in jail management is a demonstration of competency and professionalism in the field.

Hudson, who currently serves as Jail Administrator with the LCSO, began his law enforcement career as a work-study student at the Gardner-Webb University Public Safety Department in 1989. After college Hudson went to work for Laurens County as a telecommunicator for the 911 Center where he served for three years.

Hudson served three years at the Public Safety Department of Greenville Technical College achieving the rank of sergeant, and then accepted a position with the LCSO, working his way through the ranks from uniformed patrol to his current position of Major.

In addition to Major Hudson's law enforcement passion, he is also an ordained minister and serves as an Associate Pastor for Mount Gallagher Baptist Church in Ware Shoals. He serves on several boards and participates in numerous community organizations.
