Sergeant Tracy McCarol honored at retirement from CPD
By Linda Waggener
The City of Columbia personnel, Council and the Columbia Police Department hosted an appreciation luncheon for retiring Sergeant Tracy R. McCarol Thursday, 11 Jan, 2018, in the CPD office. He and his wife Melissa were joined by many members who serve in the local law enforcement community.
He grew up in Adair County, graduated from ACHS and has been a first responder his full career. He began working at EMS and stayed there for three years, moving to part time Sheriff's Deputy, then fulltime for eight years in the Sheriff's Office. He has spent the last nine years moving up in the Columbia Police Department from Patrolman to Detective to Sergeant.
Retirement from one area doesn't equal full retirement for Tracy McCarol. He already works fulltime security at TJ Health Columbia and has no plans to change that in the near future. CPD Chief Jason Cross said, "It is hard to replace experience." There are no plans to hire additional police staff at this time.
The City of Columbia employees all wish him the best:
Police Dept - Jason Cross, Kevin Atwood, Josh Brockman, Jamie Cole, Drew Conn, Jada Coomer, Anthony Darnell, Jordan Dean, Johnny Dial, Charles Greer, Jr. Murphy, Gary Roy, and Brad Sholl.
Street Dept - Roger Coffey, Donnie Rowe, and Timothy Smith.
Gas Dept – Stephen Baker, Tiffany Collins, Ronald Cook, Shane Gaskins, and Phillip Stotts.
Garbage Dept - O’Shaughnessy Frazier, Robert Montgomery, Adam Montgomery and Shawn White.
General - Curtis Hardwick, Rhonda Loy, Ann Marie Austin, Chad Myers, Craig Dean, Mark Harris, Pamela Hoots, Craig Lasley, Ronald Rogers, and Linda Waggener.
