SALISBURY- There is a new sheriff on the streets in Wicomico County. Mike Lewis was sworn-in Monday and he said he is ready for work.

Lewis took the oath of office before friends, family and most of the county's deputies.

"I feel great," he said. "I'm ready to go, ready to get to work."

Lewis is still moving into his new office.  He has a new uniform and new equipment, but as far as new personnel, Lewis said that will not happen anytime soon.

"We have some very talented people in here. And I'm going to give them a chance," he said.

But Lewis does plan on changing the county's relationship with the Salisbury Police Department. He has already met with Chief Allan Webster and says the two agencies will be working together.

"Together we're going to make a difference," Lewis said.

It is a promise he made during the election and one he said he plans to keep.
