Knox County Sheriff Mike Morris says he’s had a blessed career and can walk away after 40-years in Law Enforcement still standing up.
Speaking on WVUT’s 22-Magazine, Morris says he knew from an early age that police work would be his chosen field.
During his years on the Sheriff’s Department, Morris has been involved in all facets of the job from patroling the roads, working undercover and responding to accidents.
Even after being elected Sheriff, Morris continued to take an active role in investigations, working the streets and making arrests. He says when he was sworn in as Sheriff he was talking an oath to lead.
Earlier this week Morris received the highest honor by being named a Sagamore of the Wabash by Governor Eric Holcomb. In January, Morris will continue his public service to the county as Knox County Auditor.
