    Bryce Arritt Bryce Arritt

    My name is Bryce Arritt. I was raised in Greene County and graduated from William Monroe High School in 2013. After high school, I continued my education by attending George Mason University where I just completed my first year majoring in Criminology Law and Society with a minor in Intelligence Analysis. I have been interested in a career in law enforcement for as long as I can remember and am honored to have had the opportunity to intern at the Greene County Sheriff’s Office. I completed an internship under Captain David Roach during my senior year of high school and am now back for another. I have had a great experience and acquired a variety of valuable knowledge while interning at the Sheriff’s Office and am excited to use the information I now have in my future studies as well as a future career in law enforcement. I want to thank everyone at the Sheriff’s Office especially Sheriff Smith and Captain Roach for giving me the opportunity to learn and gain experience in the field that I otherwise would have missed out on.
