Well Known Montgomery County Deputy Retires

He was one of the first African Americans hired by the Montgomery County Sheriff's office, and  he is retiring.

Sheriff Deputy Willie Dejarnette is retiring after 31 years of service.  That is the most time served with the department.

On Tuesday, the county commission presented Dejarnette with a resolution honoring his work. He says the biggest adjustment will be not having to wake up in the morning to go to work.

Dejarnette's says the biggest change from 1976 to now is the equipment.
