The Gadsden Times reports that, Shannon Kelley was named the Piedmont Police Department’s Officer of the Year.
Piedmont Police Chief Steven Tidwell said of Kelley, “He is a model employee. You never hear him complain and he is always looking for extra work to do. He has more or less singlehandedly supervised the renovation of the police department.
“He has worked more special detail hours than the rest of the department combined. He always volunteers and helps with any programs involving children and their safety. The Piedmont Police Department wouldn’t be where it is today without him.”
