ALBION – Orleans County Sheriff Scott Hess this afternoon recognized two members of his staff who have retired:

Lieutenant Robert Perry completed a 20-year law enforcement career on Thursday.  Bob joined the Sheriff’s Office in January of 1994, under then Sheriff David Green.  Perry transferred to the Albion Police Department in September of that same year.  He returned to the Sheriff’s Office in 2001 and was promoted to Lieutenant in 2002.  His last assignment was as “C” Line Patrol Supervisor, working the 3:30 p.m. to midnight shift.

Roger Wilkins completed a 23-year public safety career on Wednesday. Roger joined the Sheriff’s Office as a Correction Officer in the County Jail in December of 1990, under then Sheriff Green.  In January of 1992, Roger transferred to Emergency Communications as a Public Safety Dispatcher, where he remained until retirement.  His last assignment was on the midnight to 8 a.m. shift.

“The retirement of these individuals represents a loss of over 43 years experience to the citizens of Orleans County,” said Sheriff Scott Hess. “While they will certainly be missed, they have our very best wishes in whatever the future holds for them.”
