A familiar face behind the badge in Oneida County will be retiring early next month.
Oneida County Sheriff Jeff Hoffman announced yesterday that he would be retiring on December 14.
Hoffman’s law enforcement career began in December of 1974. He was appointed Sheriff in 2005 and has since been re-elected two times. Hoffman said, “It has been a privilege and an honor to serve the citizens for 38 years.”
Chief Deputy John Sweeney will perform all required duties of the Sheriff until an appointment by Governor Scott Walker.
Hoffman speaking proudly of his current staff said, “I trust those now in leadership roles will continue the strong heritage of professionalism and integrity.”
Hoffman looks forward to spending time with his family in retirement and moving on to the next chapter in his life.
Chief Deputy Sweeney says, “(Hoffman) can now enjoy a very long and healthy retirement-he has certainly earned it.”
