Lieutenant Larry Young Remembered at the 2018 Annual Conference of the South Carolina DARE and School Resource Officers Associations.

The South Carolina DARE and School Resource Officers Associations held their annual conference this week in Myrtle Beach at which time they recognized and paid tribute to Laurens County Deputy Lt. Larry Young who passed away unexpectedly in 2016.

During the awards banquet this evening South Carolina Dare Association President, William Gibson, presented Dare Officer Todd Minemier of the Richland County Sheriff’s Office with the first annual Larry Young Distinguished Service Award.  This award will be presented annually to an individual or organization who has made an exceptional and lasting contribution to the law enforcement profession over their years of service.

Lt. Larry Young was a twenty-one-year veteran of the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office where he served as the DARE Officer and Community Services Supervisor until his untimely passing.

“Larry was the purest example of what a public servant and a law enforcement officer should be,” said retired Laurens County Sheriff Ricky Chastain.  “He loved his job and he loved the children he taught.  He had a magical bond with the kids and that created the perfect environment for him to get his message out about the dangers of drugs, preventing bullying and building self-esteem and confidence in our youth.  Although the DARE Program is not being taught in Laurens County at this time, I know the thousands of children that went through Larry’s class will not soon forget the lessons they learned nor their friend and their teacher who shared that message with them.”

In attendance at the presentation of the Larry Young Distinguished Service Award was Lt. Young’s wife, Felicia and his daughter, Amber in addition to a Laurens County Delegation consisting of Retired Sheriff Ricky Chastain, former Laurens County Captain Ted Richardson, retired Laurens County Sheriff’s Deputy Ed Turner and Officer Jackie Turner.
