Grayson County District 1 Constable Damon Lasley was recently voted the 2015 Constable of the Year by the Kentucky Constable Association.
Lasley, who serves the entire City of Clarkson, West Clifty, and East Leitchfield, received the award during the Kentucky Constable Association’s December meeting and Christmas dinner held this past Saturday, Dec. 12 in Richmond, KY.
The Constable of the Year award is voted on by Constables from across the state.
To receive the award at the conclusion of the first year of his first term, “means a great deal to me,” said Lasley, explaining that his goal upon entering the Constable’s office was to add a higher level of professionalism and accountability to the position.
“When I came in, I was going to try to do things the right way,” said Lasley, adding that receiving the Constable of the Year award is validation that his efforts have been successful thus far.
Married for five years to his wife, Brittany, Damon Lasley was born and raised in Grayson County and is from Clarkson.
He graduated from Grayson County High School in 2004 and from Elizabethtown Community and Technical College in 2007, after which he began working at the Hardin County Detention Center, where he currently is a Shift Commander ranked Sergeant. He is also a volunteer on the Clarkson Volunteer Fire Department.
In May of 2016, Damon Lasley said, he will graduate from Oakland City University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice Administration, and he hopes to use this degree to continue improving his Constable’s office and service to Grayson County.
“I appreciate the Fiscal Court and Judge Executive [Gary Logsdon] for the emergency equipment of lights and sirens,” Damon Lasley said. “And I hope that I have made them proud.”
