ABILENE, Texas -

Taylor County Sheriff elect Ricky Bishop will be officially sworn when the clock barely ticks into 2013 -- at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday.

The swearing in will take place in the upstairs conference room at the Abilene/Taylor County Law Enforcement Center. The public is invited to attend.

The new sheriff will swear-in some of his new deputies following his own ceremony.

Bishop beat out incumbent Sheriff Les Bruce in a Republican primary run-off earlier this year. He then ran unopposed in the November election.
