York County and the York County Sheriff's Office (YCSO) received  special recognition as an honorable mention for the South Carolina Association of Counties J. Mitchell Graham Award for the YCSO  "The Many Heroes" documentary.

On January 15-16, 2018, the York County Sheriff's Office YCSO suffered one of the greatest tragedies in its 232-year history. Three officers were shot and one killed in a series of ambushes. A year later, YCSO detailed the events of that night in their own three-hour documentary called: “The Many Heroes.” This documentary consists of 17 public safety officials describing the events of that night and openly sharing their involvement. By choosing this unique and transparent method, YCSO honors their fallen brother, honors all the public safety entities that were involved and brings healing and unification to York County. 

To view the three part series “The Many Heroes,” visit the YCSO YouTube page. To honor the legacy of Det. Mike Doty, please visit www.809foundation.org.
