Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands honored the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department on Thursday, April 18 as the Most Supportive Strutters at the annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event, recognizing the Sheriff’s Department for having 87 deputies and employees participate in the event in order to show support for sexual assault and abuse victims.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said Capt.
