An original member of the Albemarle Police has completed his last shift. Corporal Ken Richardson officially retired on Monday. Richardson joined the force after the county supervisors’ 1983 vote to establish a police department. The Albemarle Sheriff’s Office had the primary responsibility for law enforcement before that time.
