Decatur Police Officer Loses House To Fire

Chief Booker sends in this sad story and call for help…

I haven’t blogged in a while but I just wanted to share with our community a terrible event that occurred last Sunday night (May 16) . Decatur Police Officer Amy Hall’s house was completely lost due to a fire. She and her family lost everything but no one was injured. She was able to retrieve all but one of her pets from inside. She was in the process of packing her belongings from her residence in Walton County and relocating here in the City of Decatur. She has spoken at many events here in the city including at our Citizens Public Safety graduation.

We have set up an account in her name at the Decatur First Bank with the help of Judy Turner and Ann Berg. Officer Hall is a great police officer but more importantly she is a great person. Please think about her and her family during this stressful time in her life. Thanks for allowing me to share this with you all.

Sincerely, Chief Booker

  1. I had the good fortune to watch Officer Hall at work for the better part of a day last fall, and I encourage all and any to help in any way possible.

    I was floored, quite frankly, by Officer Hall’s dedication to our little town, her common sense and good nature and her spectacular professionalism under difficult conditions.
