Senior Deputy First Class (SDFC) Joseph L. Somerville, Jr. is a team player who goes the extra mile to assist his fellow deputy sheriffs and supervisors. Teamwork is commonly overlooked but critical to the success of his assigned squad and the mission of the Sheriffs Office. SDFC Somerville leads his squad in Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) arrests and traffic related citations and promotes a positive and professional image. He has received several letters of appreciation, citations, and awards from citizens and organizations.
Sheriff David D. Zylak takes great pleasure in recognizing SDFC Somerville as the Deputy Sheriff of the Third Quarter of 2005 for his 100% commitment to the agency and the Citizens of St. Marys County.
