After 42-years, Sgt. Carl Simms retired from the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office in May. On July 11, a special retirement celebration was held at the Fulton County Public Safety Training Center in College Park.
Simms began his career with the agency in April of 1971 when there were few African Americans working for the agency. In fact, he says they were not allowed to drive county vehicles until several years later.
Simms worked in numerous positions during his 42-year tenure. Throughout the years, he proved time and again that he was a valuable asset to the county and members of the community. Sheriff Ted Jackson reminded him that he is still part of this organization.
