Community Leader: Sheriff Huey “Hoss” Mack

“Blessed are the Peacekeepers”

Born and raised in Alabama, Huey Hoss Mack has spent almost his entire life in Baldwin County—creating personal ties that inspired a career of service to the community he grew up loving.

It was his grandfather’s murder in Escambia County in 1982, however, that directed his path of service. Three years later, in 1985, Mack began a career in law enforcement with the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences as a crime scene investigator and analyst. “Because of my grandfather, I wanted to work in the field to assist those who have experienced similar tragedies and are the victims of crime,” says Mack.
