Chief Ron Puckett

A proven leader we can TRUST

My name is Ron Puckett, I am the son of Harry and Margaret Puckett. I was raised in Hartselle and graduated from Hartselle High School. I was raised working on a farm with my family. We raised cattle and bailed hay. I grew up in church, my parents were very involved with church activities. Part of my church experience was attending the Hartselle Camp Meeting each summer. This was an 11 day camp and has been going on now for 118 years. I was saved while attending Camp Meeting when I was a young teen. I am still involved with the Camp Meeting to this day.

After I graduated high school I went to college and graduated from Athens State College with a B.S. in Criminal Justice. While attending college I joined the Hartselle Volunteer Fire Department and began working for Hartselle Ambulance Service as an EMT.

When I graduated I went to work as a Juvenile Probation Officer with Morgan County Juvenile Court. I worked there for 2 years and then joined Hartselle Police Department. While at the police department I have been blessed to work in many areas. I began as a patrol officer and worked the roads on third shift.  I then was assigned to the Criminal Investigation Division, I worked as an investigator for 10 years. I investigated everything from the theft of a hubcap to homicide. After that assignment I was promoted to Captain over Patrol. I held that position until I was appointed as Chief of Police. I have been the Chief of Police for over 12 years.

While serving as Chief of Police I have received professional training from the Alabama Police Chief’s Association and have been recognized as a Certified Police Chief, have received an Advanced Certificate of Achievement in Police Management and I have been recognized as a Certified Law Enforcement Executive by the Alabama Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission. I serve on the Training and Education Committee for the Alabama Chief’s Of Police Association. I am an instructor for the New Police Chief’s class which is offered to all new Chiefs in the State of Alabama. I have taught ethics, hiring of law enforcement officers, the role of the police chief and recruiting.

I have had the opportunity to work with elected officials and have learned that working together can make a difference. I have managed budgets and worked on personnel issues. I have written policies and directives and have been involved with risk management issues. I have the opportunity to be working with some of the best law enforcement officers that I know. I am truly blessed and honored to be able to work beside them, and on the same team.

Finally, I am a man of faith. I am a Christian and I live my life according to the scripture. I endeavor to live my life as a man of God and to be the salt and light of Jesus to this world. I am not ashamed of my Christian walk and I lead in a manner that would bring honor to Jesus. I will be a sheriff that your children, grand-children and family will see as a man of character, honesty and integrity. I will model these characteristics in my life and will bring honor to the Sheriff’s Office.
