A Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputy was recognized for his work in the fight against domestic violence in the community. The Northeastern Judicial Circuit Domestic Violence Task Force presented the Officer of the Quarter Award to Deputy Travis Turner during its meeting Tuesday at Peach State Bank in Gainesville. Hall County Solicitor General Stephanie Woodard, who presented Turner with the award, said his thorough reports of domestic violence incidents lend a strong element of credibility to the prosecution when cases go to trial, citing one case from the summer of 2013.
