Sheriff Scott Berry Interview by Buster Chambers. He first moved to Oconee County in 1978, and after 4 years in Athens, moved back to Oconee in 1982. His interest in law enforcement was fostered by his father's work in the FBI and his first job with law enforcement in high school. He became an Officer in 1978 and became an Investigator for the District Attorney of Oconee County in 1980. He describes how Oconee has changed since he took office to 2016 in terms of population growth, the width of the roads, and its location between Athens and Atlanta. However, he maintains that Oconee keeps its "hometown feel." He also shares the stories of his son's birth and his election as Sheriff of Oconee.
