Captain Dennis Switzer wanted to be in law enforcement since he was in the sixth grade.
He is now a 17-year-veteran with the Grant County Sheriff’s Office.
Only five months in, Switzer saw first-hand how dangerous and deadly the job could be any given day.
An Air Force veteran, Switzer was in southern Grant County on Feb. 3, 1999, when the call came across dispatch of an armed robbery in Williamstown.
The suspect, 53-year-old Kenneth Hutcherson of Frankfort, had just robbed the BP gas station and fled in a maroon 1995 Buick Skylark.
