Once Wayward Youth Now MPD Officer

37 new officers join police force

This MPD graduation ceremony had to be one of the most highly anticipated.  It came after a loss of many officers due, in part, to recent healthcare and pension cuts.  There have also been high-profile crimes involving officers.  But I wanted to make this about more than those issues.  Fortunately, one recruit was willing to share his story about going from troubled youth to new officer.  He got help through a program known as JIFF.  It was nice putting a positive spin on what might have been just another negative story about Memphis Police.
