Officer For The Day

The Laurel Police Department welcomed a special recruit today to 317 S Magnolia Street. It has been lifelong dream of Laurel resident Cody Philips to become a Laurel Police Officer so Mayor Johnny Magee, Chief Tommy Cox as well as the entire Police Department made Cody a Laurel Police Officer for The Day.

Cody had the opportunity to spend time with Mayor Magee and Chief Cox and also ride along with LPD Officers to see firsthand what “Serve and Protect’ is all about. Cody was happy to say that there were no crimes committed on “My Watch”.
