Alex City- Jeff Lynn, president of CACC, recently hired two, full time officers for the CACC Police Department. In May 2022, Mario Hodge was hired as Chief of Police for the newly established campus police department. Sabrina Osborne and Luis Mejia have now joined Chief Hodge as officers for CACC.
“I am very excited about Officer Osborne and Mejia joining the force,” Hodge, Chief of Police mentioned.
“They come with an invaluable amount of experience and will be a great fit for the Department and the College. It is rare to be able to hire officers with their abilities and experience. I am thankful for the support I have and continue to receive from my managers in, not only building a Police Department, but creating one that is staffed with highly trained and very skilled officers capable of handling any situation.”
Osborne has 18 years in law enforcement with the Alexander City Police Department. She served as a detective since 2013 and has supervised the detective division the past five years. She also managed investigations, coordinated training and had multiple years of experience with burglaries, robberies, assault, fraud, and evidence collection.
Mejia began in law enforcement in 1997 and has a vast array of experience around the world. He has recently served as an officer for the City of Lincoln since 2015. Prior to that he served in Sylacauga and Childersburg and overseas for 20 plus years with the US Army National Guard as a member of the military, administered police training in Baghdad, Iraq, and served as a member of the US Embassy Emergency Action Team in Kabul, Afghanistan.
“We are very excited to have Officers Osborne and Mejia here at CACC,” Jeff Lynn, president of CACC said.
“Safety and security of our students and employees is top priority for me. Hiring certified, experienced law enforcement officers under the leadership of Chief Hodge gives us the opportunity to provide a safe learning and working environment for everyone.”
