Sheriff Leon Lott

Sheriff Leon Lott

Sheriff Leon Lott leads the near-1,000-employee Richland County Sheriff's Dept. (RCSD), one of the largest law enforcement agencies in South Carolina; one of six regularly featured LE agencies on A&E's hit TV series, LIVE PD; and an agency which fields what is “arguably one of the best-trained SWAT teams in the nation,” according to Sheriff & Deputy magazine. The RCSD Special Response Team – a FEMA Type-1 SWAT team – has trained with everyone from the FBI to U.S. Army Special Forces operators, U.S. Navy SEALs, and a variety of foreign police agencies. In 2010, Lott traveled to Erbil, Iraq – at the invitation of the Iraqi government – to assist in the establishment of, planning for, and training at the first-ever Iraqi female police academy. Lott has served as sheriff of Richland County for over 20 years.
