The Dallas County Commission and Dallas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) honored retiring Deputy Jimmy Caffey last week at the Dallas County Courthouse.

Caffey, who served over 25 years with the DCSO, received plaques from the County Commission and the DCSO. His wife, Debbie, also attended the ceremony.

“We’re losing a good officer; I wish we could hire 25 more men like Caffey,” said Dallas County Sheriff Mike Granthum. “He was dedicated and dependable. You could call him at two in the morning and he’s come to work. Just ask his wife.”
