Sergeant Ted Carpenter Retires From the Sheriff’s Office
(Paulding County, GA) On Sunday May 30, 2021 Sergeant Ted Carpenter retired from the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office. Sergeant Carpenter began his career at the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office on May 14, 1997 as a Jailer. During his over 24 year career he served under two different sheriffs.
Prior to working with the Sheriff’s Office, Sergeant Carpenter enlisted in the United States Marine Corps where he faithfully served his country. As most all of our employees do, Sergeant Carpenter began his career with the Sheriff’s Office as a Jailer. In February of 1998 he attended the Georgia P.O.S.T. Basic Law Enforcement Training Course (B.L.E.T.C). Upon graduation from the B.L.E.T.C, he transferred to the Uniform Patrol Division and became a Deputy Sheriff. Sergeant Carpenter spent a number of years on night shift as a supervisor and eventually found his way to dayshift where he was promoted to Sergeant. Sergeant Carpenter spent the majority of his career working in the Uniform Patrol Division answering calls for service and helping to keep our community safe. Sheriff Gary Gulledge stated, “Ted was a great employee and was fun to mess with because he is from Maine and had a northern accent. He was a hard worker, both on and off duty and is an avid Red Sox and Patriots fan. We are going to miss Ted; I hope he gets to enjoy time with his family, relax, go fishing, and watch the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots as much as he wants.”
Sergeant Carpenter’s career has spanned over 24 years. During his tenure as a Jailer and Deputy at the Sheriff’s Office, he has seen many changes. We want to wish Sergeant Carpenter a happy and relaxing retirement. Now he will have plenty of time to enjoy life and spend time with his family. #Retirement #PauldingSheriff #UnitedStatesMarineCorps #Congratulations
