Newly-promoted Hancock County sheriff’s Sgt. Jeff McIntyre receives his sergeant’s badge from his wife, Cari McIntyre, following the swearing-in ceremony on Thursday. McIntyre, 47, of New Manchester, one of seven sergeants in the department, was given the oath of office by Hancock County Circuit Court Judge Jason Cuomo. The department has two sergeants in the detective division, three in the patrol division and two assigned to the Hancock-Brooke-Weirton Drug Task Force. There still is one sergeant’s vacancy in the patrol division. (Photo by Stephen Huba)
