Lincoln County Sheriff's
Office Press Release


The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office held the Official Launching of its new Metal Shark 23 Relentless patrol boat Tuesday afternoon (July 20th) at the Beatty's Ford Access at Beatty's Ford Park just off Unity Church Road.  County Commissioners Anita Branch McCall, Milton Sigmon and Bud Cesena were there as was County Manager Kelly Atkins.  Honored guests were Heath and Debra Greene.  The new boat was dedicated to the memory of the late Charlie Greene, who served as Captain with the Sheriff's Office after a long career with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.

The boat is described by the builder as a high performance welded-aluminum center console craft, specially designed for on-the-water law enforcement.  It features GPS and Sonar.  Sheriff Bill Beam said he is very appreciative of County Commissioners' commitment to law enforcement.  "This boat is just one of many things they have funded to help us keep the citizens of Lincoln County safe.  We have tried to increase our presence in all areas, but especially in this fastest growing part of the county, and on Lake Norman, which is enjoyed by citizens from all over the county as well as visitors.  This community loves their lake and totally supports their law enforcement.”
