MAN, W.Va. — Sergeant Joseph Daniel “Danny” Brown III of the Man Police Department has been selected The Logan Banner’s March Officer of the Month.
Born in Washington DC and reared in Ohio, Brown is a graduate of Eastmoor High School and Eastland Police Academy at Columbus.
“I never worked as a police officer,” Brown said. “I went to work in a make-up warehouse. I made good money.”
Brown said he met his wife, Melody Ward of Logan, and he enjoyed his visits to her hometown.
“I met my wife 17 years ago and we been married for 16 years,” Brown said. “We would come here to visit and I never wanted to go. I always liked it out here. Everybody else wants to leave and I want to stay.”
Brown and his family moved to Logan County a little over three years ago. Brown began working for the Man Police Department and attended the West Virginia State Police Academy shortly after his move to the area.
