Kevin Hall of the Jennings County Sheriff's Department was honored with a retirement lunch at Government Center on Tuesday, June 26. Hall worked in the Seymour City Police for 14 years before beginning his time here in Jennings County in 2005. Between then and now, Hall said, "I've learned a lot about working with people- talking with them and listening to them about what they want. It's a give and take." After lunch was served and eaten, a few of Hall's fellow officers stood up in the front of the room and shared anecdotes about working with him. They praised Hall, saying that he was, "good to work with" as well as calling him a gentleman. Speaking on Hall's merit as an officer, Sheriff Gary Driver said, "I've been here pretty much as long as Kevin and all I can say is he's worked just as hard from his 1st year to his twentieth. He's a great guy and a great worker." Hall also spoke on his time being an officer saying, "The job's been very rewarding, but you can't just do the job. You have to live it. Who you work for makes a big impact on how you work." The new retiree praised Sheriff Driver as well as those working in the Jennings County courts for being, "friendly and easy to work with." When asked what he plans to do post-retirement, Hall said that he plans to get things done around his home, vacation as much as he can and spend time with his family.
