James Adams, Jr.
Sergeant, Gloucester County Sheriff’s Department/Dept. Of Correctional Services
Hi, my name is Ret. Sgt. James T. Adams, Jr. I joined the Gloucester County Sheriff’s Department/Department of Correctional Services in April of 1993 when I was 27 years old, because I wanted to serve my community and continue a family legacy. My mother was employed as a member of the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office at the time of my hiring. One thing that surprised me about being a Law Enforcement Officer was the immediate gratitude and respect afforded to me. I never expected that level of gratitude. I’m sharing this because I want my community to know that I appreciate the support through the years and I’d do it all over again. I’m so honored to be remembered in this Museum, because this is unexpected. The job of policing is so necessary, it supports not only our daily interactions but, our way of life. I’m truly humbled and thankful.
