On January 25, 2013, Sheriff Gerald Couch promoted Lieutenant Cindy Mustachio to the position of 1st Lieutenant, Assistant Jail Commander. As such, 1st Lt Mustachio becomes only the second female to serve in a command staff position in the Sheriff's Office. The first was Judy Mecum, who served as the Captain in Criminal Investigations Division in 1992.
1st Lt Mustachio has been with the Hall County Sheriff's Office since 2001, initially serving in the Court Services Division before transferring to the Jail Division, where she has most recently served a shift commander. A sworn Peace Officer since 1995, 1st Lt Mustachio served with the both the Woodstock and Suwanee Police Departments, as well as the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office prior to joining the Hall County Sheriff's Office. She has been instrumental in the department's accreditation processes as well as training and supervision. 1st Lt Mustachio holds a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from North Georgia College and State University.
“1st Lt Mustachio has already been a great asset to the department,” says Sheriff Gerald Couch. “Her leadership skills, as well as her education and technical knowledge, are exactly what we are looking for in our new leaders. I'm confident that she will continue to excel and help us move the Sheriff's Office forward.”
Upon her promotion, 1st Lt Mustachio said, “The Sheriff's Office has been very supportive of my efforts, and I'm grateful for the help I've received throughout my career to reach this point. I look forward to serving in this position and helping the department provide first rate law enforcement services to our community.”
