Longtime Pulaski County sheriff Doc Holladay retiring

Pulaski County Sheriff Doc Holladay says the memorial outside the sheriff’s office in Little Rock is one of his best achievements in 12 years as sheriff.

For the past 47 years, Doc Holladay has begun every day the same way. Before stepping out of the door each day, Holladay said he reaches over to kiss his wife goodbye. And each day Deborah Holladay tells him the same thing: "May God bless you and protect you, and I love you."

Pulaski County Sheriff Doc Holladay, shown in his office in Little Rock last week, will end 47 years in law enforcement at the end of this year.
