The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office has two additional certifed motorcycle deputies according to Sheriff Darren Campbell.

Deputies Brandon Gudgeon and Joseph Hodges graduated from the Motorcycle School run by the North Carolina Highway Patrol. This school consists of a grueling two week program designed to push the students and bikes to their limit. The deputies graduated last Friday.

“Of the eight students who started this particular class, four graduated and of those four, two were our guys” said Sheriff Campbell.

With the addition of these two deputies, Iredell County now has six motorcycle certified deputies.

“I feel these deputies help us as an agency provide a needed service to the community. Our bikes usually stay very busy with assisting by responding to calls, escorts, parades and presence at other special events”.
