September 3, 2010

Maiden’s new police chief said two words described his feelings after being sworn into his position: excited and nervous.

“It’s excitement for the opportunity that I’ve been provided by the council and the mayor to be part of a team effort to make the police department better,” said Chief Tracy Ledford, who started his career in law enforcement at Maiden Police Department in 1994. “I’m also excited to continue forming strong relationships with the community.”
