MONROE COUNTY, Ga. -- Former Monroe County Sheriff John Cary Bittick is officially a US Marshal after being sworn in on Thursday.

Monroe County congratulated their former sheriff, who was appointed by President Donald Trump as the 18th United States Marshal for Middle Georgia.

The President nominated Bittick for the role in February, and the Senate confirmed his new position in April. He'll serve for the Middle District of Georgia.

The ceremony took place in Macon at the WA Bootleg US Courthouse, where Cary was accompanied by his father Cary Bittick and son, Lawson Bittick.

In a Facebook post, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said, "Congratulations, United States Marshal Bittick, for this high honor and thank you for your years of service to Monroe County!"
