POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Grady Judd will start a historic fifth term as Polk County sheriff this week after being sworn into office during a ceremony on Tuesday.

In July, the sheriff’s office said Judd had secured another term after nobody qualified to run against him. He’s the first sheriff in the county’s history to be elected to a fifth term.

According to reports, Judd hasn’t had an opponent on the ballot in more than 15 years. He was first elected sheriff in 2004 after 32 years with the agency. The county sheriff serves a 4-year-term.
