Who We Are

​​Experience and Knowledge You Can Trust


     Jenny and Allen Dailey together have dedicated more than 55 years to the Sumter County Community and Public Service. Prior to retiring, Jenny spent over 25 years as a Deputy Sheriff. She was fortunate to have worked in many different capacities during her career, to include becoming a Certified Instructor through the SC Criminal Justice Academy in Columbia. Jenny is also one of few female Driving Instructors for the SC Criminal Justice Academy.  Through her experience she had many experiences where the lack of knowledge or carelessness caused undue suffering for families. Beginning a venture such as this is nothing new for Jenny; she has a heart for teaching and educating our society in hopes of saving lives for our future generation.  Jenny has a BA in Criminal Justice with a Minor in Homeland Security.  

     Allen has dedicated over 35 years of service to Law Enforcement in Sumter County where he retired in June 2021 as Major of Administration.  He is also an Adjunct Professor with USC-Sumter. Allen came to Sumter in 1977 via the USAF where he served nine years. Allen is also a graduate of the SC Criminal Justice Academy and certified as an instructor. Allen taught the D.A.R.E. program in the Sumter District 2 Elementary schools for many years. He too has a passion to educate new drivers of the hazards associated with the responsibilities that come along with the operation of a motor vehicle. Allen has a BA in Criminology and a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice.
