Sheriff Eric Williams initiated the official process, as required by statute, of notifying the Governor’s Office and other officials of his intent to retire from the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office on May 23, 2014.
"After much consideration and deliberation, I have decided to tender my notice of retirement from the Sheriff’s Office to be effective May 23, 2014. I have a unique and exciting opportunity to join the team at Old National Bank as their Director of Security.
It has been an honor to serve the great people of Vanderburgh County as a member of the Sheriff’s Office for over two and one half decades and as the elected sheriff since 2007. It has been an extremely challenging, rewarding, fulfilling and an amazing career. I will treasure my time serving this community in the public sector. I will leave the sheriff’s office with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
Knowing that the men and women of the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office are caring, conscientious, well trained, well equipped and professional public servants, I know that the office and the community will be in excellent hands.
I am very excited to be joining the team at Old National Bank. Under the leadership of Bob Jones, the Board of Directors and the senior leadership team, Old National Bank is well known as an exemplary community corporate citizen, a company with strong ethics and leader in their industry.
Sheriff Eric Williams"
