Corporal Randall Walter with the Liberty County Pct. 6 Constable’s Office was named Deputy of the Year by the Dayton Chamber of Commerce at the monthly luncheon on Tuesday, September 5.
“I didn’t even know I was getting that award. I was very surprised,” said Walter.
Walter has been with Pct. 6 for more than two years. He started as a deputy and was promoted to corporal after one year, working for Pct. 6 Constable Zack Harkness.
“Corporal Walter fosters a community policing strategy, which is a reminder that law enforcement is not just a profession but a calling to protect and serve, and to connect with the heartbeat of the communities. I am honored to have such a dedicated professional to be a part of my team,” said Harkness.
Walter says he is honored to have been selected as Deputy of the Year and says that being a deputy constable is different from his other experiences in law enforcement.
“I get to do a little bit of both civil and criminal. I have never done civil before, so it opened my eyes. It’s a very good opportunity since I get to assist other agencies,” said Walter.
This October will make 11 years that Walter has been in law enforcement. He is grateful for the people in his life who made it possible for him to serve the communities he loves.
“I would like to thank a lot of people for the support they gave me through the years. I’d to thank my wife and my partners, and last, but not least, Frank Longoria, who trained me at Liberty PD and taught me many lessons that I’ve learned through the years and still helps me to this day,” said Walter.
