Officer Chelcie Fletcher, 26, has been hired as a full-time police officer for the City of Mansfield.
Fletcher, the daughter of Erich and Amy Fletcher, graduated from Paris High School. She has been in law enforcement since 2013, and completed Arkansas Law Enforcement Reserve classes in 2016.
“I wanted to partake in a career that gave me the chance to make a positive impact on people’s lives with hopes of making a difference within the community,” Fletcher stated.
Fletcher worked with Mansfield Police Chief Wayne Robb while he was a deputy in Scott County. “I resided in Mansfield at that time, and I really got a hometown feeling while I was there. It’s a small tight knit community that has the ‘nobody is a stranger’ type of camaraderie. So once I heard of an opening with the Mansfield Police Department, I was delighted at the opportunity to serve in a community such as this one.”
Fletcher is currently at the Arkansas Law Enforcement Training Academy in Camden, AR. She is scheduled to complete that training in August.
