Mabton loses police officer

MABTON - Mabton Police Officer Travis Shepherd will be leaving the force after today.

Shepherd is leaving Mabton to join the police force in Grandview. This will leave the Mabton police short again.

Mabton will hire a new officer in January but that officer will go to a police academy first and will not be available until sometime around April.

To fill the void, part-time officers will take over.

"We have capable reserves on board," Mayor David Conradt said.
