Alumna Officer Katie Hagins Featured in Statesboro Police Department Officer Spotlight

Congratulations to Department Alumna and Master of Science in Criminal Justice student, Officer Katie Hagins, for her feature in Statesboro Police Department’s Officer Spotlight:

“Up this week is Officer Katie Hagins! Katie started her law enforcement career at SPD a little over a year ago. Her favorite part of the job is being able to help people when they need it the most, that it’s never boring and she learns something new every shift.

Katie is originally from Augusta. She and her fiancé, Cameron, have been together for almost 3 years and have 2 dogs, Maya and Oliver. She is currently pursuing her Masters degree in Criminal Justice from Georgia Southern University, while working full time. In her spare time, Katie likes to sing and play the guitar and piano. Her favorite color is purple and her favorite food is hot wings.

Officer Hagins was recently named SPD’s 2018 Rookie of the Year. She has been a standout recruit from day one and in the last year has grown into an exceptional officer known for her professionalism and work ethic.
Congratulations Officer Hagins!

Captain Kaleb Moore says, “Officer Katie Hagins joined our team here at the Statesboro Police Department in December of 2018. In the beginning she seemed a bit shy. However, Officer Hagins is approachable and a pleasure to be around. She is very respected by everyone at the police department. In fact, Officer Hagins was just awarded the Rookie of the Year award for 2018. Officer Hagins is a graduate of Georgia Southern University. She handles herself on the street very well and turns out very articulate reports. Officer Hagins has aspirations of becoming an investigator where I know she will excel when given the opportunity. Everyone could not be more proud of Officer Hagins’ performance. Katie keep up the great work and thank you for all that you do.”

You can find Officer Hagins on shift B2, working 4 pm to 2 am. Thank you for the great work you do 232!”
