City of Waldron Mayor David Millard swore in the police department’s newest recruit on Wednesday, April 24.
Waldron native, Brittany Fletcher, said she is excited about the opportunity and looks forward to serving the citizens.
Fletcher is a 2013 graduate of Waldron High School. According to Fletcher, joining the department fulfills a lifelong dream.
“I’ve always had an interest in law enforcement ever since I was a little kid. My dad was a dispatcher at the jail here in Scott County and I remember being little and spending time there getting to know people like Cody Carpenter, Mac Davis and Jason Daggs. They all had such a big impact on my life and that’s why I wanted to become an officer.”
Fletcher’s first day on the job was Monday, April 22. She will be working in the patrol division.
