Retired law enforcement officer Monroe Jordan was named Bulletin-Times’ Hardeman County Person of the Year by the residents of Hardeman County.
Jordan has been an officer for the Middleton Police Department, Whiteville Police Department and Bolivar Police Department. He has over 40 years of law enforcement experience in Hardeman County and is always remembered as being fair and honest.
Jordan began his law enforcement career in 1967 and retired in 2006.
“You just don’t know how much I appreciate this,” said Jordan, as he addressed his family and friends, and sent a message to everyone in the county who voted for him.
Jordan received over 90 percent of the votes for Hardeman County Person of the Year.
Often remembered for going out on after-hours calls in his overalls with his gun belt on, Jordan served the people of the county with integrity and helped to train many who are currently in leadership.
Jordan is also a veteran of the United States Army.
For the second year in a row, residents have voted a law enforcement officer to receive the title. Last year, Sheriff's Deputy Dale Wyman was voted Hardeman County Person of the Year by the citizens of Hardeman County.
