“One reason that I wanted to become a police officer is that it’s been in my family,” said Jeremy Parnell. “My father was a police officer and my uncle was a police officer. They were both here with the Jonesboro Police Department. Growing up, it was just something that I always wanted to do.”
“What do they think about you following in their footsteps?” asked a Sun reporter.
“Times have changed and as far as I know they’re proud and excited that I did follow in their footsteps. I have enjoyed it. The overall comradery of the department is something that I didn’t know that I’d have here with JPD. It’s something that I wouldn’t change.”Staci Vandagriff | The Sun
