The York County Sheriff’s Office: Centuries of Public Service and Protection

The York County Sheriff’s Office has been proudly serving and protecting York County, South Carolina since 1786, when the first sheriff James Hawthorne was unanimously elected. York County encompasses the northernmost point of South Carolina and includes such towns as Rock Hill, Fort Mill, and Tega Cay, which are only minutes away from Charlotte, North Carolina. The York County Sheriff’s Department is an important and faithful servant of the people of York County, having experienced numerous events over its centuries in operation.

When the York County Sheriff’s Office had undergone a major update to their facility, Major Hudgins reached out to James Zambrano, a project manager at BlueFire, a division of Heritage Printing, Signs & Displays. Major Hudgins wanted the BlueFire Team to update the York County Sheriff’s Office wall with new branding to highlight the history of the organization. Upon hearing the request, we were more than happy to assist the York County Sheriff’s Office in this endeavor.


A Rejuvenated Wall of Remembrance and a Straightforward Installation Process

The history of the York County Sheriff’s Office is long and involved, which required a large wall wrap for the hallway that leads to the main meeting room, where press conferences are regularly conducted for local TV news in surrounding communities such as Rock Hill and Fort Mill. Project Manager James Zambrano conducted the initial walkthrough and site survey of the space in order to give an accurate proposal for the finished signage. The BlueFire Team under James’ direction was able to make the process straightforward, simple, and transparent.


The idea for the timeline started off with a wall wrap, but eventually, the project scope expanded with the inclusion of dimensional signage to accentuate the individuals and events in the history of the York County Sheriff’s Office. The lettering gave a three-dimensional effect that allowed the events and individuals to be highlighted most effectively. The additional materials involved in the installation included a combination of brushed silver lettering, gull wall wraps, and acrylic stand-off plaques. In total, the timeline wall is 60 feet long, with photos and events as far back as 1786.



A Legacy Preserved and a Promising Future

Once the BlueFire Team finished installing the timeline wall wrap and dimensional lettering, Major Hudgins and the officers at the York County Sheriff’s Office were overjoyed with the work that we did.
