Ron Puckett fast tracking his Command Staff - In the right direction

Folks,  we have a lot to look forward to keep up with Ron Puckett on his Sheriff-Elect FB page.

COMMAND STAFF ANNOUNCEMENT
With the election behind us and January 15, fast approaching, I am quickly ramping up plans for the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office. My hope is to transition smoothly and quickly as we work to meet the high expectations of the people of Morgan County. While some pieces of the transition will take time, the implementation of my command structure can begin now so that the pieces are in place to begin to meet the challenges on the first day in office.
I am happy to announce the selection of Lieutenant Chris Price as my Chief Deputy.
I have had the opportunity to know and work with Chris over the years as a resident of Hartselle and an officer in the Sheriff’s Office. Throughout that time I have come to respect Chris’s ability to lead while earning the respect of those that follow and his dedication and work ethic. In this new role, Chris will be able to rely on his diverse experience as well as his deeply rooted understanding of Morgan County.
As a Morgan County native, Chris Price saw the calling of Law Enforcement through his father Walter “Bubba” Price, a retired Captain with the Sheriff’s Office and the sincere commitment to others through his mother Brenda Wade. A lifelong resident of Hartselle Chris is a 1997 graduate of Hartselle High School.
After graduating, Chris followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the Sheriff’s Department in 2004 working in the Courts Division. Chris then continued his development in Law Enforcement by graduating from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Academy and transitioning to the Patrol Division in late 2004. In 2006 he was assigned to the Narcotics Division where he attended Basic Narcotics Training at the Naval Air Station in Meridian, Mississippi as well as S.W.A.T. Training in Jefferson County. During his time in the Narcotics Division, the team was instrumental in dismantling numerous clandestine Methamphetamine labs throughout Morgan County.
After his time in Narcotics, Chris rejoined the Patrol Division where he was promoted to Sergeant and eventually Lieutenant in 2015. During this time Chris received the “2010 Officer of the Year” award from the American Legion, Post 15 and twice earned the Merit Award from the Sheriff’s Office. He also completed the Field Training Manager program through the University of North Florida.
Lieutenant Chris Price is married to Mandy Evans Price and is the father of four. The Price family enjoys grilling, spending time with friends and family and cheering on the Alabama Crimson Tide.
I look forward to working with Chris and believe his experience and ability to build relationships will be integral as we lead the Sheriff’s Office and uphold the trust that is placed in us.

  1. Sheriff Puckett, you could not have picked a more qualified Chief Deputy. Chris is a great and respected officer, just like his father, Bubba was. So happy of this decision!

  2. Well done Sheriff Elect. Price is one of the best. He Dutton, and Mason have been treated like second class citizens by Franklin. They have performed their jobs exceptionally despite the odds.

    1. The dedicated Officers are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. They deserve some peace and tranquility after what they have endured with Ana.

    2. It has been stressful for the good, honest deputies. They have dreaded coming to work to have to walk on egg shells, not knowing if they were going to be next to be let go for nothing, just because she thinks they don't like her or whatever. She has treated her deputies like crap from day one. They should have been her main concern, but she could not have cared any less about her deputies. What a piece of crap for a Sheriff.

    3. The only thing Ana ever cared about was how to fatten her wallet with all those sheriff office accts.

  3. Can not have picked better. In all my years of law enforcement military, Birmingham and Morgan County I never had a better supervisor. Excited for the immediate show of honor, integrity, and commitment being brought to the Morgan County Sheriffs Office by this decision and the Sheriff elect. Finally, significance in change on the way. IT IS TIME! Positive productive and much needed change.

  4. Great decision on Chief!!! We know changes are coming. Can’t wait to see the changes in the staffing throughout the entire department. The deputies have been treated horrible and the jail staff needs to be overhauled completely from top dogs to bottom feeders. Poor Puckett may have a total of 10 good officers working in the jail the rest are garbage or someone’s pet. Morgan County is ready for some real honest and ethical people to keep our county safe.

  5. Why do these sheriff's worry more about rodeos and side issues than law enforcement. The rodeos and other events should not take pesedence over the basic law enforcement duties of the sheriff's office including taking care of patrol deputies.

    1. Because she can take all proceeds of the rodeo account as personal money that is why she cares about the rodeo so much, i saw 1st hand the theft with all the rodeo cash never being deposited ever!

    2. I saw it too, all the cash being handed over to the Sheriff or Livingston or Berzett, most of it never made it to the bank. They should ALL go to jail for theft.

    3. All in good time
