Gwinnett County’s new sheriff has been officially sworn in. Keybo Taylor was sworn in on Saturday, two months after taking the job. His original swearing-in was scheduled for December but was canceled after he got COVID-19. He, along with several other newly elected sheriff's, contracted COVID-19 following training.
The swearing-in took place Saturday, at 4 p.m. at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center. According to the Gwinnett Daily Post, he spoke about growing up in Lawrenceville. He served the county's police department and then became leader of the department's narcotics unit.
It is notable that he was sworn in before Black History month ended; Taylor is Gwinnett’s first black sheriff.
