Rappahannock County Sheriff Connie Smith congratulates newly minted deputy Matthew Cody Dodson upon his completion of the Rappahannock Regional Criminal Justice Academy in early December. The 21-year-old Dodson, who grew up in the county and graduated from RCHS, started his law enforcement career in October as a correctional officer with the RCSO. Dodson, also a member of the Sperryville Volunteer Fire Department, has since been promoted to a patrol deputy. “Cody has a bright future ahead of him and I’m proud to have him working at RCSO,” Smith said.
