Cheshire retiring from jail

Tuesday was the last day that Cache County Sheriffs Captain Kim Cheshire served with the sheriffs office as Commander of the Cache County Jail. After 30 years of working in the law enforcement area he is now retired. He began his career with Hyrum City and ended up as Cache County Jail Commander. Cheshire says he has loved every position he has held through the years and that’s because of the people he has worked with and worked for. Cheshire says it’s good to keep expanding your horizons but he will greatly miss working in law enforcement. “But it always comes down to the people, the citizens, the deputies, the people you work with, the press,” Cheshire said Tuesday prior to a farewell open house. “We have a unique ability to know each other and work together and I haven’t seen it so well run as I have here in Cache County.” Cheshire says he has formed his own consulting company, Chesh Consulting, and will be evaluating jails in Utah and Arizona. An open house was held in his honor Tuesday at the Cache County Law Enforcement Complex. Cheshire’s son, Cam, was born with Down Syndrome and this has inspired Cheshire to take an active role in the state’s law enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. Cheshire will be a guest on KVNU’s Crosstalk show Tuesday, Dec. 22, at 9:10 a.m.
