A lifelong Halifax County Native and 1993 graduate of Southeast Halifax High School, Chief Deputy Neil Aycock attended Halifax Community College in Weldon NC and completed Basic Law Enforcement Training in November 1994.
Chief Deputy Aycock started his career with the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office on September 1, 1995 under Sheriff M.L. Stallings after a short stint at the Enfield Police Department under Chief M.M. Muhlig.
He was promoted to Corporal in January 1999, Sergeant in November 2004, Lieutenant in June 2006 and Major in February 2014.
Chief Deputy Aycock received his Advanced Law Enforcement Certificate and Advanced Service Award on December 11, 2020. He was voted the 2022 Halifax County Employee of the Year by all of the county employees.
Sheriff Tyree Davis promoted Aycock to Chief Deputy in June 2023 after almost 28 years of service.
Chief Deputy Aycock is a devoted family man and dedicated lawman. An active but humble and modest member of the community, he exemplifies law enforcement and is always willing to assist others.
He spends countless off-duty hours working on patrol vehicles, radios and other equipment at a tremendous savings to Halifax County. His wealth of knowledge is also an asset to other agencies as we work together to protect and serve the citizens of Halifax County and neighboring areas.
Chief Deputy Aycock still resides in the Enfield area and enjoys spending his free time with family and trail riding on his UTV with friends.
