MARYVILLE, TENNESSEE – Sheriff James Lee Berrong is proud to announce the Sheriff’s Office 2020 Employee of the Year was awarded to Deputy Joseph Maus. Sheriff Berrong presented Deputy Maus with the honor in front of a small gathering at the Sheriff’s Office this morning.
Deputy Maus was selected because he continually goes above and beyond what is expected of him. Earlier this year, Sheriff Berrong appointed Deputy Maus as the agency’s COVID-19 coordinator, which includes the responsibilities of assuring a continuous flow of personal protective equipment (PPE) for the Sheriff’s Office front-line deputies, as well as keeping up with the health and welfare of deputies as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Deputy Maus is also the Sheriff’s Office EMR (Emergency Medical Responder) coordinator and is responsible for assuring compliance with necessary training, equipment, and supplies that are required for the agency’s 33 EMR certified deputies. In addition, Deputy Maus assists with training employees on the agency’s records management system and assists with other I.T. issues.
Deputy Maus began his career with the Sheriff’s Office in 2016 as a patrol deputy. In addition to his full-time career at the Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Maus is also a full-time law student. He is currently assigned to I.T. He is married to wife Hannah and they reside in Maryville.
