The Marshall County Sheriff's Office recently hired another fresh face to the force, a Marshall County native with a family tradition in law enforcement.
Many of you may not see Deputy Aaron Lane while he's working the midnight shifts, but he said he's glad to be working in Marshall County.
Lane grew up near Fairdealing and after graduating from Marshall County High School in 2006 completed schooling at WKCTC and Murray State University, graduating in 2012 with a bachelor of science in wildlife and conservation biology. When plans didn't pan out the way he had hoped, he went with his next interest, law enforcement, and said it has been a good fit.
"Everybody says they get into it to help someone but sometimes you don't feel that way, depending on the call, but helping even one person a day is what keeps me going," he said. "Plus, it's never the same thing every day; it's something different all the time."
Lane said the call volume in Marshall County has been higher than he was used to in Murray and he's had to get used to working midnights, but he's glad to be "home."
"I enjoyed working in Murray but I really wanted to work in the community I grew up. It's home," he said. "I'm looking forward to serving the citizens here with the utmost respect."
When he hired on, Marshall County Sheriff Eddie McGuire assigned him the same unit number as his grandfather, John Smith, who retired in 1998 from the MCSO. Lane said he's proud to have it.
When he's not working, Lane enjoys spending time with his wife, Natasha, woodworking, hunting and fishing.
McGuire said, "Aaron is a lifelong Marshall County resident who comes to us with stellar reviews from his previous employer. He's as fair as they come and is already an excellent addition to our team."
