Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown sets November 30th retirement

Posted: Updated:
JACKSONVILLE, N.C. - Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown tells 9 On Your Side he’s retiring November 30th.

He made the announcement Friday morning during a meeting with deputies and detention officers at the Bible Church in Jacksonville.

In his speech, he thanked the department and the people of Onslow County for allowing him to serve them the last 24 years.

Brown says the department has a lot to proud of over the past 24 years.

"I do not see our accomplishments over 24 years surpassed,” said Brown. “Employees of the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office, you are the greatest team on our earth for which I am proud to have been a part of. "

Brown lost his re-election bid last Tuesday in the Republican primary to Hans Miller. Miller will face Democrat Scott Himes in then general election in November.

Brown recognized both candidates during his speech, noting they were both qualified for the position.

"It's all about sheriff today, it's not about Scott Himes, it's not about the election, it's about Ed Brown and the great job he's done the past 24 years," said Scott Himes.

Hans Miller echoed those thoughts.

"I wish him well in retirement and I want the people of Onslow County to know that if I have the chance to serve them, which I hopefully will, they will be well severed," said Miller.

Brown says he looks forward to spending more time with his family, but did want to make one thing clear.

"Just because I'm retiring, my prayers won't retire, my cares won't retire, my love won't retire," Brown said.
