Steve Brenneman, current Morrow County Sheriff and a fixture of the office for the better part of three decades, is set to retire at the end of the month.
Brenneman paid complement to the county and the present commissioners as he announced his June 30 retirement date at Monday’s Morrow County elected officials’ meeting.
Brenneman served as Morrow County’s Sheriff for the past 12 years and was a sheriff’s deputy prior to that for a total of 34 years of service with the sheriff’s office.
“I’m glad to have served the county,” remarked Brenneman at the Monday meeting.
Brenneman said that the sheriff’s office has seen an addition of deputies on the county roads for the past couple of years, as well as being able to purchase new cruisers.
“This group of commissioners have worked well with us to get new cruisers and officers out there every years for the past few years,” Brenneman added.
Brenneman expressed confidence in Chief Deputy, John Hinton who will take over many responsibilities of the office as he leaves. Hinton is the Republican nominee for Sheriff following the March primary. There is no Democratic candidate.
Brenneman said that he will still reside in the county and be a part of many activities here. He is looking forward to the Awakening event on July 22 – 24, as well as spending time with family and friends.
Commissioners and other county officials thanked Brenneman for his service to the county and appreciation for his dedicated work here.
