HARTFORD POLICE CHIEF ANNIE WARD
A number of years ago the Hartford Mayor and Hartford City Council made an extremely wise decision. They hired Annie Ward as Police Chief.
Chief Annie Ward is dedicated to the citizens and guests of Hartford Alabama. She goes above and beyond the service to the citizens to serve and protect.
A great lady. A great choice as Police Chief. A dedicated public servant.
THANKS to Chief Ward and Slocomb Fire Captain Brandon Hovey for the saving of lives and then working to save property.
