We're always working to introduce you to our officers! Today, we're highlighting Corporal Mathew Ramirez who has been with the Odessa Police Department for three years in November.
He was born and raised in El Paso. Corporal Ramirez became a Police Officer to help and mentor the youth in the community that he serves.
He said, "Growing up I would hear Police are just here to harass and take you to jail. I want to change that mindset and be a positive role model."
Personally, he's a big Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns fan. He loves learning about history and visiting historical places.
Thank you Corporal Ramirez for being the change and working to make a difference especially with young people!
