Newly appointed Oxford County Sheriff James Theriault of Rumford has his badge pinned on Tuesday by his son Shawn.

Theriault, who retired in early 2014 after 20 years as Mexico’s police chief, was sworn in by Dedimus Justice Rick Micklon of Otisfield in a ceremony in the commissioners’ office of the county building on Western Avenue.

Theriault’s son Shawn pinned the sheriff’s badge on his father’s uniform.

“I’m very thankful and fortunate for the opportunity to serve as sheriff,” Theriault said after taking the oath of office. “I know this is going to be a challenging position, but I look forward to the opportunity that’s been afforded to me. I hope to work diligently in restoring the faith of the community and rebuilding morale in this department.”

He said he hopes to “do the position the justice it deserves.”
