Major Audie Rowell of the Walton County Sheriff’s Office recently joined the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center’s (ECCAC) board of directors.
With an extensive career in law enforcement since 1986, and the recipient of numerous awards, Major Rowell has worked with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, Tallahassee Police Department and now the Walton County Sheriff’s Office. He has served Walton County as Internal Affairs Commander, Professional Standards Bureau Chief, Support Services Bureau Chief, Patrol Bureau Chief and is currently the Director of Emergency Services. Being involved in the community is high on Major Rowell’s priorities as he serves on the Walton County Area Chamber board, the Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers board, and now ECCAC’s board. He and his wife, Cheri, have four children.
“The Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center is dedicated to helping abused children through the horrific events that occur in their lives,” commented Major Rowell. “I am honored to be a part of such a tremendous organization that puts children first.”
