On Friday, February 7, Scott County Sheriff Randy Shores, and fellow deputies honored a long-time member of the department.
D.J. Pyles has served as a deputy at the Scott County Sheriff’s Office for the past 15 years. Pyles’ concluded his full-time career as deputy the week of February 2, but plans to continue serving as a reserve deputy.
Pyles stated, “I have decided to take a new career path and will be working for Walden Security at the federal courthouse in Fort Smith. I will always cherish the memories and the friendships I have made while I’ve been employed here. Serving in my hometown and serving the people of Waldron and Scott County has been a blessing and a honor. To all my brothers and sisters I’ve worked with in the green and blue, it’s been a privilege to do so...I’m very thankful for having worked here for 15 years…I loved working for Cody Carpenter, Terry Staggs and Randy Shores. All were very good Sheriffs to work for. I’ll miss being there, but life is about changes and I feel the Lord has opened this door for me and I wanted to see where it leads.”
Sheriff Shores expressed his gratitude for the time Pyles has spent at the department and wished him the best of luck in his new venture.
