Meet Officer Jimmie Rainey! He was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, and served six years in the Army National Guard.
Officer Rainey is married to Hannah Rainey, and they have a 7-month-old daughter, Rebekah Rainey.
He is one of our amazing officers who graduated in our 18th session of the Odessa Police Academy, graduating in August of 2019, and has since been working out on patrol.
Officer Rainey says he chose this career because he wanted to make a positive and meaningful difference in people’s lives.
He states, “Black History Month is important because America is a melting pot of all different races and cultures. Having months of recognition allows the people that live in this country to gain an understanding of fellow Americans experiences that they themselves have not experienced. It also offers an opportunity to recognize accomplishments of those in the respective month’s community.”
