As last week drew to a close, so did the career at Mansfield for Officer Kelly Perez. Perez has accepted a new position as a deputy with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.
Perez was hired at Mansfield in September 2017. Later, in July of 2019, she graduated from the Arkansas Law Enforcement Training Academy.
A community-minded officer, Perez was a highly valued member of the police department. She befriended the youth, the elderly and gave comfort to those who needed it most. She was truly an asset to the town and community.
On Monday, April 12, Perez will take on a new role with the FCSO, working drug interdiction.
“I will miss serving the citizens of Mansfield, and the school,” Perez stated. “I am thankful for the friends I have made in this journey at Mansfield. I would like to thank Officers Chelcie Fletcher, Sean White, Chief Stacy Wieburg, Mark Harris, and Chief Boyd Farmer for their support and friendship. Working for Mansfield has given me the opportunity to really grow and learn in my career. Mansfield is an amazing community and I will always call this little town, home!”
Mansfield Police Chief Wayne Robb honored Perez on her last day with the department with a Certificate of Service and a cake. “Thank you Kelly for your time here at the Mansfield Police Department,” shared Robb. “Franklin County is getting a great officer. You will be missed!”
