Statement from Rod Carroll on his Facebook page:

Dear Friends and Supporters: I would like to thank you for your selfless efforts and support of my family and I. The election did not turn out as we hoped but the voters spoke and I have to listen. I will be resigning from the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office on 12/31/16. I will hold my head high as I walk out for the last time. I have spent 23 years serving Jefferson County as a Peace Officer, Paramedic and Firefighter, I would like to thank those brave men and women that I have served along side. I have gained much more than I have given.Although I do not have any idea as to what God has in store for me, I pray that he allows me the opportunity to serve my fellow man in some capacity. Again Thank you for being my friends.
