Four new police officers were hired at Monday night’s City Council meeting in Marshall. Click to hear KMZU’s Sarah Scott speak with City Administrator Connie Latimer:
Fred Hayes, Jr., Matthew Renfrow, George Vance, and Wilburn Walker will serve as full time, entry-level officers. Latimer said Hayes is a local resident. “We’ve had several retirements, several resignations. You know, young officers and people come here and get experience, and they move on to other things or they leave the police field all together,” said Latimer, “Once in a while there’s just a growing pain. Police Departments tend to have those. You know, some come and stay forever, some come and don’t stay very long, and that’s for various reasons.”
