SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Douglas Puckett has never regretted going to work a day in his professional life.
Starting on June 4, 1974, as a new police officer with the Louisville Police Department, to his final day on Jan. 31, 2017, as chief of police for Shepherdsville, Puckett has loved his job.
But, when looking at his retirement pay recently, Puckett said he knew it was time to leave.
“I always said I’d know when the time has come,” Puckett said of retirement. “The time has come.”
