This week the spotlight falls on Officer Mi- cael Snyder, who is 21 years old and is origi- nally from Millbrook, AL. He has been in law enforcement for two months having just started his career with Florala Police Department. Michael is married to Kayla Snyder. His hob- bies outside work are spending time with' his family and being outdoors when the weather is warm, with deep sea fishing as his favorite hobby. When asked what inspired him to become a police officer, Officer Snyder replied,"The idea of being able to help someone who is having a rough time, or protecting someone from harm. I have always felt that maybe I could make a dif- ference in someone's life or uplift someone that feels alone or defenseless. I believe that people see the police as bullies way too often, but me, myself, coming from a law enforcement family, I can tell you that we are humans with families too! I thank the City of Florala for welcoming me here to the Police Department. I look for- ward to serving the city and getting to know the community." Officer Snyder is scheduled to begin the po- lice academy in January. IN BUSINESS 18 YEARS... STILL GOING STRONG!
