CCSO Wall of Honor

The Clay County Sheriff's Office Wall of Honor was designed and dedicated years ago to recognize the CCSO deputies who made the ultimate sacrifice by losing their lives in the line of duty.  The hope of our agency is that, by having their photographs on permanent display, their sacrifice will never be forgotten and will serve as a constant reminder of the committment made by every deputy who takes the oath to serve and protect.  The CCSO Wall of Honor is located on the third floor of our agency's main office located in Green Cove Springs, now named the Det. David White Memorial Headquarters.
