Kevin Bennett is the newest addition to the LaRue County Sheriff’s office.
He was hired as a deputy on Oct. 1.
Bennett said his new job has “been a dream of [his]” since he was a child, but he only actively started pursuing it in the last seven or eight years.
Bennett said being from the area gives him an advantage when it comes to knowing how to get places and people to talk to. He’s always had a desire to help people, and when the job came open, he felt like he should pursue his dream.
