Devin Pressley Hodges

Deputy Sheriff Devin Hodges was killed in a boating accident while participating in a joint marine patrol training exercise with the Army Corps of Engineers at Singing Pines Recreation Area in Starr, South Carolina.

He and two other occupants of the boat were ejected from it during the training at approximately 9:30 am. He was then struck by the propeller of the empty boat, which had come back around after everyone had been ejected.

Deputy Hodges was pulled from the water and transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries one hour later.

Deputy Hodges had served with the Anderson County Sheriff's Office for six months and had served in law enforcement for eight years. He had previously served with the Lander University Department of Public Safety, Abbeville County Sheriff's Office, Laurens County Sheriff's Office, and the Calhoun Falls Police Department. He is survived by his wife and children.

I am so sorry for the loss of Deputy Hodges. It is my honor that I am representing my agency this year at the Law Enforcement Memorial as one of the name readers for those fallen Law Enforcement brothers in arms from this past year. I wanted to take the time to reach out to those that I am recognizing on this somber occasion. Again, I am sorry for your loss, to the family, the community, and the Sheriff's Office.
