Lee Shiver retires from Dougherty County Sheriff's Office

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –One of the longest serving employees in the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office retired after nearly 35-years.

Colonel Lee Shiver started working in law enforcement in South Georgia in 1969.

Dozens of law enforcement officers, judges, and courthouse workers gathered to celebrate Shiver's career and retirement.

The Operation Division Commander for the Sheriff's Office was known for how well he treated the suspects he arrested.

Shiver said  "If you treat them right, they don't give you as much problem as they do if you manhandle them, push them around. I never had to use force on anybody but a couple of times. It worked out better that way."

Shiver and his wife say they plan to relax and enjoy being at home together.
