William Sircy has begun work as a full-time Madison County Sheriff’s Office investigator for the western part of the county with his office located in Greenville at the Tri-County Electric building on US 90.
After graduating from Madison County High School in 1988, Sircy entered the United States Navy where he served for four years. Upon getting out of the Navy, he attend the Law Enforcement Academy at North Florida Junior College, where he was taught by Jimmy Bunting and Sandra Ebberson.
After working for the Madison Police Department for almost two years under Chief Randy White, Sircy was hired by Sheriff Joe Peavy and later worked under Sheriff Pete Bucher. After suffering a stroke, he left law enforcement for six years. During those years, he attended the Baptist College of Florida and was ordained as a minister in February 2004. He served as a youth minister at Brewer Lake Baptist Church in Lafayette County from 2006-2010.
Sircy went back to work full-time with the Sheriff’s Office in 2009 and said that he was having to work sometimes on Sundays and Wednesdays. It didn’t feel right to keep taking the church’s money when he could not dedicate as much time to the youth as before.
“They wanted me to stay, but I felt that I had to move on,” he said.
Sircy said that with his new position, he had done every job in the Sheriff’s Office except for School Resource Officer.
He began his duties as an investigator on May 2 and said that he feels comfortable in the position.
“I oversee investigations in the western part of the county,” he said.
Sircy said that the Sheriff’s Office had been trying to get a presence in Greenville for quite a while.
Sircy said that he has been able to clear up some investigations and he is still working on solving others.
“I like a challenge,” Sircy said of his job as investigator. “I like being able to take little or no evidence and find out who did it and why he did it.”
