Longtime LaSalle County Sheriff Tom Templeton has announced his retirement. He made the announcement Monday at the LaSalle County Board meeting. Templeton's last day will be June 30. Templeton said that some decisions are made for you and some you make yourself. He says his decision to step down was a little of both. He is recommending the appointment of Under Sheriff Adam Diss as interim sheriff for the remaining eighteen months of his term. Templeton has been with the sheriff's office since 1975. He first became sheriff in 1998.
