PRESS RELEASE

Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman Ordered to Active Duty in the Missouri Army National Guard for Deployment to Kuwait

Kevin Hillman, Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney announces that he has been ordered to active duty in the Missouri Army National Guard beginning in early May for a deployment to Kuwait later this summer.  Mr. Hillman serves as the Command Judge Advocate for the 35th Combat Aviation Brigade (CAB).  The 35th CAB has been ordered to active duty with training at Fort Leonard Wood, Fort Hood, and then deployment to Kuwait for approximately nine months.

“As a member of the National Guard, I have always had a contingency plan in place in case this happened,” said Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman.    “We have initiated that plan and everything is in place to ensure that the services of the Prosecutor’s Office are not interrupted while I am away.”

Mr. Hillman has requested that the County Commission grant him a military leave of absence, which they have.  In addition, Mr. Hillman has requested that pursuant to Missouri law, the Presiding Judge appoint an acting prosecutor.  Mr. Hillman recommended that his chief assistant prosecutor, Ken Clayton, be appointed to the position.  Judge Storie agreed with that suggestion and Mr. Clayton has been appointed.  In addition, the Commission last year authorized an additional assistant prosecutor position in the event of this deployment, and that position is currently filled. Finally, Mr. Hillman has requested that except for the pay required under the military leave statutes, that his pay be used to fund these additional positions.

“I have full faith and confidence in Ken Clayton’s abilities as the acting prosecutor,” said Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman.  “Ken served as the elected prosecutor in Phelps County for eight years and has worked in my office for the last year and a half.  His experience and knowledge have proved invaluable to the office for the last year and half and I know he will lead the office well in my absence.  I do not expect that the citizens of Pulaski County to notice any change in the level of service my office provides while I am away.”

“I am very proud in what my office has been able to accomplish over the last year and a half.  I expect that this progress will continue while I am away and have full faith in my staff.  The best move I made in my first year in office was surrounding myself with very good employees and assistant prosecutors who work hard everyday to bring justice to Pulaski County.  I hope that you will support them, my family, and all of Pulaski County law enforcement over the next year.  I want to thank the County Commission, the Judges, the Circuit and County Clerks’ Offices, and all the law enforcement agencies who have worked with me to ensure that this is a smooth transition.  I am proud to serve my country but look forward to getting back to my home and family and once again serving the citizens of Pulaski County,” stated Kevin Hillman.
