Panama City Beach Police Department

Hurricane Michael came ashore a few miles from our city. It took me three days to return to work after the storm. I arrived to find them working on backup radios. No CAD and no A/C and little sleep.

The average person will not be able to handle this job – it takes a strong-minded dedicated and heartfelt person to do this job.
