News Officer Larry Moses to retire after 28 years

Larry MosesRetirement party Friday, Oc. 21 at Town Hall

Patrol Officer Larry Moses will retire this October after giving 28 years of dedicated service to the Town of Franklin. Officer Moses began his career with the Town of Franklin on Oct. 3, 1983, under Chief Ernie Wright and Mayor Woodrow Reeves. He has seen many changes during his service and the most notable change being the growth of his department.

Moses began his career working with only five employees in the police station and will retire working with 18 other colleagues, which he also calls family. He remembers his time of service by sharing stories of the past and his memory of once only having three patrol cars two of which were typically out of commission. He says “we all just packed into one car to get where we needed to go.”

He also reflected on how wonderful the modern day communication equipment is and how the improvements over the years have made working for the Police Department so much better. Moses shares how wonderful the employees of the Town have been to him and how he will miss the friends that he has made. He also shares that he will miss the interaction that he has had over the past several years while community policing and checking in on local businesses.

Moses retires with great satisfaction from his many years of service and is pleased with the opportunity that the Town has provided him for the past 28 years.

The Town of Franklin will greatly miss Officer Moses, and wishes him a happy retirement. The Town of Franklin will celebrate Larry and his service during a retirement party on Oct 21, 2 p.m. at the Town Hall Building. Friends and family are welcome to attend.
