It is great sadness that I announce the death of Deputy Joshua Ryer Jr. Deputy Ryer was involved in a two car motor vehicle accident today outside the City of Washington, Georgia while in route to the Regional Youth Detention Center there in Washington. Deputy Ryer had not yet picked up the individual when the accident occurred.
Deputy Ryer, LJ, began his law enforcement career with Glascock County Sheriff’s Office on September 10, 2018. He had ambitions of becoming a Federal Law Enforcement Officer. He was a great young man and becoming a great officer. He was only with our office a short period of time but he quickly became one of our family members. He will truly be missed but absolutely never will be forgotten.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to LJ’s family first and foremost. Please keep them lifted up in yours as well.
LJ fly high our dear friend and God speed!
Deputy Joshua Ryer Jr.
End of Watch 1/29/19
