SHERMAN, TX ― The Sherman Police Department welcomed a new member to the force. Officer Lauren Green was sworn in Monday morning.
It has been several years since the Sherman Police Department has sworn in a female officer. Green says she has wanted to help and inspire people since she was a little girl.
Green says now she will get that chance.
"i would love for a little girl to come up to me and think that she can be anything that she wants to be if she puts her mind to it," Officer Green says.
Green says she hopes to inspire other women to join the force as well.
