CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) — Charleston County Deputy Leonard Thompson life’s work is to protect and serve.
“Every second is crucial in this job,” he says. “Just coming to work every day and I get a chance to help people.”
Deputy Thompson patrols the county’s streets most days. He says the variety keeps his adrenaline going. However, a recent incident increased it even more. “It was nerve-racking for sure. It was kind of magical because her eyes opened. She was talking, and it was great.”
