MAN — Ronald Hurley, a native of the Buffalo Creek area, is the newest addition to the police force in the town of Man.
Hurley was sworn in by Man Mayor Jim Blevins on Monday, March 11 at the end of the monthly Man Town Council meeting.
Man Police Chief David Walls said his newest patrolman has a pretty unusual background.
“He is a trained aircraft mechanic,” Walls said.
Hurley is a veteran who served in the U.S. Navy and was assigned to posts in Norfolk Virginia as well as a stretch or two out east. Far east that is.
“I did two tours in Iraq,” the soft spoken Hurley said. “I worked at Norfolks and Grummand on aircraft and for Timlo Aviation on aircraft.”
Hurley said his family is originally from the area and he had long wanted to pursue a career in law enforcement.
“When I moved home, I decided I really wanted to become a policeman,” he said.
