PODCAST: Mike Costa Interviews Hamilton County Sheriff Austin Garrett

  • Monday, May 20, 2024

Sheriff Austin Garrett has had a long career in law enforcement, following (somewhat) in the footsteps of his father, Austin “Cowboy” Garrett.

In this episode, Sheriff Garrett shares his three reasons for doing the job, why the HCSO uses social media to share the good and the bad, and how he maintains a work/life balance despite having to always be “on.”

He also shares behind-the-scenes information on how the city and county work together, and why he’s been “working short” without a chief deputy for almost two years.
