On Friday, March 12, 2021, Sergeant Lenny Carr retired from the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an official retirement celebration was unable to be held, but the Deputies and civilian staff of the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office were able to send him away with well wishes from afar.
Sergeant Carr began his career with the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office on January 20, 2005, as a Detention Officer. During his over 16 year career, he served under two different sheriffs. Throughout his career, he served in the Jail Division, Uniform Patrol Division, and the Juvenile Division. After coming to law enforcement after a career in the corporate world, Sergeant Carr progressed through the ranks to become the Sergeant in the Crimes Against Children Unit within our Juvenile Division. Eventually, Sergeant Carr would oversee the Sex Offender Registry for Paulding County.
