TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -- The Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office is welcoming its newest Chief Deputy.
Captain Terry Ruley was sworn in Monday morning in front of family, friends, and county leaders.
He is replacing Steve Hartman who retired last Friday after more than 35 years of service.
Terry's wife Sherri pinned the new badge on his uniform and Judge Zeman swore him in.
Sherri said her husband of more than 22 years is perfect for the position.
"He's one of the most ethical, honest guys you would ever want to know," said Sherri Ruley. "So to see a good guy win is really rewarding."
Sherri said Terry is nervous but excited to start his new gig.
She was blown away by all the support for her husband during the ceremony.
