Andy Latham has been named captain of the Mt. Pleasant Police Department. Latham began his career with the City as an officer more than 20 years ago, and has since served as sergeant and lieutenant.
In his new role, Latham is looking forward to the opportunity to connect with community members. “I hope to continue our tradition of excellent police work while making our department more personable and approachable,” said Latham. He hopes this will lead to more interaction between officers and the community on a social level.
As captain, Latham says he also plans to learn new phases of police administration while working with and supporting staff in any way he can.
Latham replaces the department’s former captain, Paul Lauria, who took the helm as the City’s director of public safety/police chief in February.
