Batten to resign as Columbus County sheriff

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Columbus County Sheriff Chris Batten says he will resign early next year.

“It has been an absolute dream to work for the citizens of Columbus County,” Batten said in a statement. “My time as sheriff has been one of the most gratifying experiences of my life.”

Batten says he will step down effective at noon on Jan. 7, 2014. He says he has accepted a job with the North Carolina Department of Justice as Eastern Field representative for the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Education Training and Standards.

Batten says he has worked closely with Sheriff Standards for about eight years representing the sheriffs in the region on the commission. He says in his new role he will be working with sheriffs all over eastern North Carolina to ensure training practices are followed and sheriff’s offices records are in order.
