To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to extend congratulations to Cobb County Sheriff's Deputy Ernie Williams on receiving the 2017 Public Safety Officer of the Year Award, presented by the Cobb County Bar Association during its recent Law Day Awards luncheon.
The national theme for this year's celebration of Law Day is "The 14th Amendment: Transforming American Democracy," which commemorates the amendment's citizenship, due process and equal protection clauses in our Constitution, thus advancing the rights of all Americans.
We salute our colleagues in the Cobb County Bar Association for their leadership in coordinating a most successful Law Day observance.
Patrick T. O'Connor
President, State Bar of Georgia
