HPD Officer Randy Wiles Retiring; 27-Year Career Ends Jan. 6HNN - HuntingtonNews.NetHPD Officer Randy Wiles Retiring; 27-Year Career Ends Jan. 6 Huntington, WV (HNN) -- If you are from the Huntington area and you don't know Huntington Police Department Officer Randall W. Wiles personally, you know someone who does.He is a singularly classic hometown figure, whose character and wisdom under pressure have set him apart, and made him a demi-celebrity in Huntington's law enforcement circles.After 27 years of honorable service, Officer Wiles will be retiring from the HPD on Friday, January 6, 2006. A local boy who graduated from Vinson High School, he married his sweetheart, Penny, and they had three sons, Jeremy, Darren, and Brady.He entered the police force in 1978, and his record has been varied and accomplished.A purely technical run-down of his career would look something like this: His first 12-15 years of his career he worked the midnight shift; the next several years were spent on drug and vice units; he is ending his career doing dayshift patrol; and he is retiring with the rank of Private First Class, with a certification in marksmanship, and as a member of the SWAT team. Human relations, though, is the no-less technical but often more messy area of his career in which most of the people who know him say he has excelled.In fact, Wiles couldn't even estimate the number of people who have his cell phone number.He gets calls from people who know of a car accident, or even a crime, that call him instead of calling the main police switchboard.His reputation of fairness precedes him. The Huntington of Randy Wiles' retirement is definitely different than the Huntington of his youth.During Officer Wiles' career he has seen everything from car accidents to larceny, drunken drivers to vice busts, threats of suicide to acts of violence between rival drug lords. When he first started patrol it was alcohol, marijuana and sometimes cocaine that plagued the city, not crack and heroin, meth and prescription pill abuse.The new narcotics also brought a new rise in vandalism, prostitution, and crime in general."A big problem with the narcotics and the pills", said Wiles, "is that the addiction that comes with them is so much stronger than what we were seeing with alcohol and marijuana.Most people can't support their habits without turning to crime, so break-ins and violent crimes have increased." Even in the daily face of the rougher side of life and society, Randy still does his best to follow the Golden Rule."I always try to treat everyone with respect," Wiles said in an interview.Wiles went on to say that positive aspect of his job is that "when someone has been hurt or has been a victim of crime, it is excellent to be able to help them." J.T. Combs, Sergeant with the HPD and commander of the newly-created Drug and Vice Unit, says that it was Wiles who convinced him to join the HPD while he was in college, and that he has thoroughly enjoyed his over-20 years career choice.Of Wiles he says, "He's the hardest working police officer I have ever known." Wiles is looking forward to life after retirement.He has been in business with Jim Hatfield for the last 15 years, and has a slate of work to keep him busy, to ease the transition into civilian life.Of course, there is also the honey-do list that his wife, Penny, is working up for him."I think it will be OK, at first [to be retired] ... but after a while I will have to see how it is," he said with a smile.
