SHERMAN, TX -- A new officer joined the Sherman Police Department this week.

Sherman native Cody Woods recently passed the state certification test and was sworn in Monday at a department ceremony.

Woods, who is finishing up at the Collin County Police Academy, says he is excited to hit the streets as a patrolman on Thursday, and in doing so, keeping up a family tradition.

“[It’s] something I’ve been interested in all my life. My grandfather was a retired peace officer from Gainesville, and I just kind of been interested ever since then," Woods said.

Woods' wife, brother, and parents were on hand to show their support.

    Cody, you are working for a place that respects you. Congratulations! And for what Grayson County CJ said - you aren't nearly as underpaid as the county jail employees. You have a job that you'll love and you'll make a decent living. The world could use a lot more just like you! Congrats! (PS> Get used to stupid remarks like the one made by Grayson Co CJ - the world is full of idiots.)

    Welcome to the looney bin! Hope you were prepared to be under paid, over worked and over run by political BS. The upside is you'll never be bored!
