Officer Allen Hammond served the City of Anderson Police Department and the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office with pride and dignity along with the United States Marine Corp. Hammond was instrumental in the formation of the first bike team the city ever had an organization of community events from walks, races, and back to school events. One event became so popular it was also called Hammond Fest. He also served in the Patrol Division and Detention Division.
Allen Hammond was the epitome of character and integrity. He never backed down from a challenge and never had a mean word to anyone. He could always brighten a child’s day. Allen set the example for us all to follow. I was more than proud to have served as his Field Training Officer and all through the years until he retired from this agency as a Lieutenant. We celebrate in the fact today Allen is with the Lord. Thank you for your service to the Anderson Community! We keep in prayer for the Hammond family.
Funeral arrangements will follow at a later time.
