Tia McWilliams didn’t see many women in law enforcement roles growing in her rural Georgiacommunity. Despite the odds, that didn’t stop her from pursuing the path. This week, she made history in her town alongside a huge career milestone.

McWilliams became the first Black woman to become a sheriff in Taliaferro county, serving as chief deputy. With over 20 years working with the sheriff’s office, she says she didn’t choose to work in the field, but rather the profession came to her when she received a work referral from a friend for a position while she was unemployed.
