Lt. John Pevey Retires from CPD

Lt. John Pevey has retired from the Columbus Police Department after 33 years of service. Over 200 family and friends gathered at the American Legion Saturday night to help him celebrate his retirement.

Organized by his daughter, Ashlee, family, friends and former co-workers all took time to tell their favorites memories of John from his days on the force.

Former Chief of Police, J.D. Sanders told Lt. Pevey that he “drove 1,000 miles just to see you” while District Attorney Forest Allgood talked of Pevey’s impeccable skills on the witness stand and said to Pevey: “You’re a good cop. And we’re the worst for losing you.”

Lt. Pevey was sworn in as a patrol officer on February 16th, 1978 and quickly worked his way up the ranks to Investigator, Corporal and Sergeant. During the past 33 years he has served as a member of the SWAT team, a member of the Homicide Task Force which was created to solve unsolved murders in Columbus, was the only auto-theft investigator in the department for years, and was Commander of the Columbus Metro narcotics Division. John was instrumental in creating the Columbus-Lowndes Metro Narcotics Task Force Unit, an act that combined the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Department Narcotics Unit and the Columbus Police Department’s Metro Narcotic unit.

John’s family presented him with a plaque to thank him for his years of service and dedication and his fellow officers from the CPD and LCSD bought him a grill. Lt. Pevey finished his career as a Shift Commander/Supervisor in the Uniform Patrol Division.

  1. A MUST READ! I’m so proud of my Daddy and his 33 years!! Not many Officers can claim such an accomplishment! Thanks again to everyone that help made my Dads night a success!! And thank you to all those who encouraged, supported, prayed, and loved my Dad during his 33 year career!! I can assure you, MANY of you made as much an impact in his life, as I’m sure he has made in yours… the CPD has lost one of their best. But legends never die (or “retire”)… so his legacy will continue to live on thru the Officers that learned from him… Thank you all again!! :)
