CORPORAL WILLIAM A. JOLLY

 

 

Corporal William A. Jolly began his career as a Correctional Officer with the Cecil County Sheriff's Office on January 14, 2013.  He was promoted to Deputy First Class on March 14, 2014, and promoted to his current rank of Corporal on September 5, 2015.  Corporal Jolly sets high standards for himself and is certainly an example for his subordinates to follow.  He maintains a positive and professional demeanor at all times which is reflected in his daily interactions with staff members as well as persons from outside agencies.  He has shown himself to be an effective supervisor and leader by gaining the respect of his peers, subordinates, and the inmates.  His work is above reproach which resulted in him being the back up for the Administrative Officer.

Corporal Jolly welcomes new responsibilities which was evident when he became a key member of the team that helped implement and train Officers in the use of the new Jail Management System, which went online in September 2015.  Corporal Jolly was instrumental in providing vital input for the new system, which has proven to be very efficient.

  

  SHERIFF'S SALUTE


In 2015, the Cecil County Detention Center switched over to a new jail management system.  The duration of the project was approximately one and a half years.  The process involved the selection of consultant, review of project demonstrations, selecting criteria to judge the various vendors, the selection process, and ultimately, the implementation process.  Lieutenant Darryl Osborne, Sergeant William Herold and Corporal William Jolly went above and beyond their required duties to ensure a successful implementation of the new system.  Please join us in congratulating them in Sheriff Scott A Adams Sheriff's Salute given on December 29, 2015.
