Hermes bids last farewell
“I appreciate the opportunity I’ve had for the last 14 years, and I’m not going anywhere,” he said. “I’ll see y’all later; I’m going fishing.”
Hermes was presented with several pieces of recognition, including plaques from the RPD and Mayor Dan Hollingsworth.
“This is a happy day for Randal and his family but a sad day for us because we won’t have him here,” Hollingsworth said.
“He never seems to get excitable on the outside, which is a tremendous asset for a police officer, because his quiet demeanor has helped diffuse things that could easily have gotten out of hand.”
