Name who was Sheriff of Caldwell when you were born or when you moved into Caldwell County.

If you want to recall who you thought was the best Sheriff Caldwell had, ever, do name that person.

Also name who you feel is the worst Sheriff of Caldwell during your lifetime as a resident here.

Bliff Benfield was Sheriff when I was born. By all accounts of what I am told he was a great Sheriff and well liked, he stayed in office for a while. I dont think Roger was a bad Sheriff, he learned from Bliff and was responsible for building the new office and jail. I think Roger just lost track of things near the end and let people do whatever they wanted.
I know from stories about good ones before my time like Jim Clark and Ray Moore.

I doubt we have ever had one as bad as Jones but I cant say for sure as I haven't heard much about the Sheriffs before the 50's. I know he is by far the worst in my lifetime or the decade or so before me.

If you don't care then move the f**k on. Some of us do care..thankfully. That's the problem now, people like you are so accustomed to being ran over in life now you just take what comes along and refuse to stand up for what's right.

The nobody cares response must just know how this survey will end.
Claude Goble was Sheriff when I was born. I only remember Bliff Benfield and Roger Hutchings growing up and early adultgood. Both Bliff and Roger carried themselves with an aura of respect and integrity. Both didn't spend money unnecessarily hence, same uniforms and cars. Clark started off with vote buying and expensive legal counsel to make sure he was Sheriff. The power, and money spending began. Jones,slithering in, fooling good Christain people - very scary in itself and will catch up to him, Jones hands down deserves to wear the glittered sash WORST SHERIFF EVER.
Really, what would our past Sheriffs say if they could see Jones? Other than what a disgrace he is to the field of law enforcement. Maybe his photo will get lost at the history museum or fall behind a plant.

Moore was sheriff when I was born.

Bliff Benfield, Roger Hutchings didn't,unnecessaryi'll spend money, but money spending came with Clark and Jones has gone crazy spending. Jones is the worst Sheriff ever ...hands down.

I heard a lot about Claude Bible an Bluff Benfield growing up. Roger is a friend and an excellent sheriff. I will never forget the help he & his wife Cathy gave us regarding my grandson' s dad and getting VA benefits for our grandson as a newborn baby. Nor will I forget two other major instances in my life when Roger proved what a decent respectful man he was. Unfortunately I knew Alan Jones when he was going to Appalachian College...selfish man then and now.

I cannot understand why the past Sheriffs aren't on the Caldwell Sheriff website. Good look to any kids trying to do a book report!!!
