Dobson’s name to go on wing of new law enforcement building

Sheriff Clarence W. “Moose” Dobson will be long remembered in King George for his 35 years of service as the head law enforcement officer in the county.
Dobson, who is retiring at the end of this month, earned his legacy and the Board of Supervisors ensured that it’s permanently remembered.
Chairman Dale Sisson announced that Dobson’s name will be on a wing with the lobby and office for the sheriff in the new King George County Sheriff’s Office. That building portion will be called, “The Clarence W. Dobson Law Enforcement Center.”

Sisson surprised Dobson with that announcement at a private retirement dinner on Dec. 4. Sisson also publicly announced it at last week’s board meeting on Dec. 7.
“I wanted to let everyone know that what we were able to present to the sheriff at his retirement ceremony was the naming of the sheriff’s office portion of that building as the Clarence W. Dobson Law Enforcement Center,” Sisson said last week. “I think it’s a huge honor for the sheriff, his family and all who have served with him over his 35 year tenure as the sheriff of this county.”  
The new law enforcement building is under construction and expected to open this coming June 2011. The complex is located in the King George County Government Center on Route 3 (Kings Hwy) near Purkins Corner.
Dobson’s retirement takes place a year before his current term of office expires.
Sheriff is an elected office under the state constitution, but the law allows for a seamless transition to his chief deputy in a case where the sheriff’s seat becomes vacant a year before its election. Major Steve Dempsey will take over the position.
