Many southwest Missouri law enforcement officers were present at the Monett Justice Center on Thursday for the reception in honor of Detective John Allred, who is retiring. Shown, from left, are Allred, Michael Cooper from the Lawrence County Sheriff's Department, Barry County Prosecutor Johnnie Cox, Detective Ben Ramsey from the Aurora Police Department and Don Massengill from the Monett Police Department. On display were several items of memorabilia from Allred's career, including a 1984 letter from Police Chief Wes Thomas recommending Allred for a raise from his first stint as a dispatcher working for $3.50 an hour. Allred said he has no immediate plans for his retirement and expected to sleep late on his first days off the job. Allred will be on vacation until his last day on Aug. 1. Pollice Chief Tim Schweder said the department is presently reviewing applicants to fill two positions. [Times Photo by Murray Bishoff]
