After serving the City of Hardy as Interim Chief of Police, twice…Mayor Jason Jackson swore in Tamara Taylor as the official Director of Department of Public Safety at the council meeting held Tuesday, Feb. 21.
Not one to stand in the stoplight, Taylor is excited about the role of leadership, but said that is because she has a great team of fellow officers. She didn’t go into law enforcement with the hopes of being head of a department someday, or to ever hold a rank. “I never imagined it would be, I never really wanted a rank and I was fine in patrol. I did it for the people,” Taylor said.
