Recently, I resigned my teaching position of 11 years teaching high school anatomy and physiology, due to our first little bundle of joy. Being a mom and an officer's wife brings challenge, but both jobs have great rewards as well! I have been associated with the department for ten years now since my husband has been working the weekend shift. We love the department and this city. It has been a privilege to get to know many of the officers of the LPD for the past years, but our goal with the formation of this association is to get to know and help their families as well. Being the spouse of an officer is a tough job, and we would love to do all we can to help make your job, and in turn your spouse's, just a little easier. Thank you for checking out our website, and please let us hear from you!
I worked for the Lewisville Police Department as a dispatcher for 17 years. Last year, I made a very difficult decision to leave “home and family”, for a position at Highland Village Police department as their Communications Manager. I never realized when I started this job many years ago that it would become my true passion and my life. As a dispatcher, our sole responsibility is to ensure responder and citizen safety. I never took this lightly; your family is my family. I would never allow anyone behind the console that did not have your officer’s safety as their first priority. This is not only because I’m passionate about my calling- but because I too am a LEO’s wife. My husband has been an officer for 26 years. My goal as a founder for this program is to reach out to the family members, so that they may have the opportunity to get to know the other families and have a support system within the department. I know firsthand the struggles of being an officer’s wife, of living this life, the emotional roller coasters of a bad day, and missed holidays and family gatherings. This program is here for you, we look forward to interacting with each of you, and your support in our mission.
