To Honor The Career Of Captain Darrell Burgess April 17, 2015
Richard Hudson, R-NC
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Stanly County Sheriff Captain Darrell Burgess for his faithful service over the last 40 years to North Carolina’s 8th Congressional District. Captain Burgess has served professionally with the Stanly County Sheriff’s Office where he moved up in the ranks from an employee of the Communications Division, to a sworn Deputy Sheriff after his completion of Basic Law Enforcement Training, and finally to Captain of Patrol. He has been chosen twice by his peers as the Stanly County Law Enforcement Officer of the Year. During his time with the Sheriff’s Office, Captain Burgess served as one of the first K-9 officers in Stanly County, where he worked with a bloodhound named Lucky. He holds a certification as a state instructor from the North Carolina Police Work Dog Association, as well as with the North American Police Work Dog Association. Additionally, Captain Burgess volunteers with the North Carolina Canine Emergency Response Team. Captain Burgess has dedicated his time to Stanly County, both as a volunteer and public servant, since 1970 when he first started working for the North Carolina Department of Agriculture. Captain Burgess was one of the first Emergency Medical Technicians in the state, served with the Oakboro Rural Fire Department, and volunteered for more than 30 years with the Stanly County Rescue Squad, where he even served as chief. Despite a kidney transplant in 2008, Captain Burgess has never slowed down and returned to work and volunteering after only three months. Because of his lifetime of service through his volunteer work and vocation, Captain Burgess was bestowed the “Order of the Long Leaf Pine” award in April 2015, which is the highest civilian honor awarded in North Carolina. Our state and local community have greatly benefitted from his servant leadership. It is an honor to extend these remarks today to congratulate Captain Burgess on his retirement and receiving the “Order of the Long Leaf Pine” award."
