XENIA – Deputy Sheriff Shawn Bradley has worn many hats during his 25-year career in the Greene County Sheriff’s Office. He served in the penitentiary division as deputy assigned to prison and court security. Bradley also served in the law enforcement division as a patrol and detective assistant.
On Thursday, September 30, he was honored in a retirement ceremony at the Sheriff’s Office, which included a Board of Commissioners retirement resolution, a ghost flag / box, many cards, a cake and a punch.
“I’ve enjoyed all of the positions I’ve had and the people I’ve worked with,” said Bradley, who thinks it’s just time to retire. I think we are extremely lucky to have law enforcement doing this job. I really enjoyed working as a patroller and an investigator, I really enjoyed both.
Even if he retires, Bradley will be busy.
“I plan to travel and spend time with family members,” he said. “I missed a lot of Christmases so now is the time to catch up. “
Bradley has also served as a marksmanship instructor, driving instructor and member of the honor guard. On Thursday, he made his last radio call.
“He’s a very good assistant, he made a lot of friends while he was here – on and off the job,” said Major Shawn Prall of the Law Enforcement Division.
