A former Carter County Sheriff’s Department officer is settling into a new home as an investigator at the Elizabethton Police Department.
Before working at the sheriff’s department, Todd Hamm, a Stoney Creek native, went to school at East Tennessee State University, where a class helped set him on the path to a law enforcement career.
“I was actually going to ETSU and had an introduction to a criminal justice class that I really enjoyed,” he said. “I decided to make that my major. I applied at the Elizabethton Police Department and the sheriff’s department in ‘95. I got hired at the sheriff’s department.”
