With the mindset of “Protecting Paradise” in Orange Beach while looking for new officers, Chief Brown said, “We want the right fit. we want the right mindset and we want the right heart.”
“This is Orange Beach, Alabama and we have a lot of officers who want to move to the beach but very few make the cut,” Mayor Tony Kennon said. “So when you see these guys standing there having made the cut, they are very high performance and we appreciate them very much. We will never let y’all down, I promise you.”
