Christian Co. Jailer Brad Boyd announces retirement

Christian County Jailer Brad Boyd will retire following a long career of service at the facility, effective July 31.

That’s according to a letter from Boyd to Christian County Judge-Executive Steve Tribble, notifying him of his intention to retire.  In the letter, Boyd says it was a decision he came to after much thought and discussion with his family, and it has been an honor to serve the citizens of Christian County.  In his 27 year career at the jail, Boyd says he can say with confidence that the county has the best jail in the state, with “awesome staff who are carrying out the day-to-day tasks”.

Boyd thanked the voters of Christian County for providing him with the opportunity to serve as he has.  Boyd served as Christian County Jailer for the past 14 years and says he will assist in any way he can as officials look to fill his vacancy until a new jailer is elected. Judge Tribble will be tasked with choosing a replacement to serve the remainder of Boyd’s term.

Jailer Boyd says in a statement to the media that his retirement has nothing to do with comments from a recent audit regarding the purchase of snack cakes through a school fundraiser with commissary funds, saying they were purchased and sold at a profit through the canteen. He adds that he has nothing to hide.
