The Winston County Board of Supervisors adopted the following county ordinance in its regularly scheduled board meeting on Monday, June 17:
It shall be unlawful for any person to openly carry or brandish a firearm on the grounds of the Winston County Courthouse unless said person is a duly designated law enforcement officer or unless the person has the express permission of the Winston County Sheriff and/or the Winston County Board of Supervisors.
Any person found in violation of this ordinance after being forewarned is to be taken into the custody of the Winston County Sheriff or his duly appointed deputy and delivered to a Justice of the Peace of Winston County where if found guilty of this ordinance said person is to be guilty of a misdemeaner crime comparable to unlawful trespassing.

Cade, a labrador mix, joined the force on May 24 and along with his human partner, Deputy Jimmy Lovorn, has already become an integral part of law enforcement in the county.
