Detention Center renamed after Sheriff Cannon

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon received a big honor Monday afternoon.

The Charleston County Council officially renamed the detention center after him.

Council members say the move is a small way to show appreciation and support for a man they say does an outstanding job watching over our citizens on a daily basis.

The council voted for the renaming at the beginning of September.

Cannon was first elected to the job in 1988.
