After nearly 29 years with the Salem Police Department, Lt. Timothy “Tim” B. Carroll, Sr. is retiring effective July 1. Carroll began his employment at the Salem Police department in September of 1982 and during his time of service he has performed a number of important duties.
Carroll worked as a patrol officer and detective until 2003 when he moved to the forensics unit as a crime scene investigator and property and evidence room manager. He was appointed to Sergeant in charge of this unit in June of 2007. On September 1, 2010, he attained the rank of Lieutenant and remained in charge of the department’s forensic unit until his retirement.
“Tim is a dedicated employee and the position he has held requires the organizational skills and attention to detail that he possesses,” says Salem Police Chief Jeff Dudley. “The department will miss his talents and his sense of humor. Tim has a wit about him that is very contagious.”
Tim was selected as Salem Police Officer of the year back to back in 1992 and 1993 for his outstanding work.
Tim has a daughter, Carmen, and a son, Timmy, who reside in the Roanoke Valley.
Tim will be relocating to Terre Haute Indiana to join his wife, Candice.
