New Assistant Sheriff Collins
By Allegra Nixon
The Sheriff’s Department welcomes Jesse Collins as a new Assistant Sheriff and celebrates the promotion with style. A ceremony took place for Ms Collins earlier this week to commemorate her efforts in the Department and wish her good luck in her new position.
The event took place at a specially arranged lot in Bayside, and was an invitation-only affair. Fortunately, TraceNews was one of those lucky enough to be invited to this exclusive celebration.
“For rather a short stay in the Department, Jesse has achieved much,” says Sheriff Kylie Roberts in her speech, “She has shown great skills and leadership and is capable of maintaining control in difficult situations.”
The somewhat serious tone of the festivities soon vanished as Sergeant Elora Hartley started the “Question and Answer” session by asking Ms Collins what the silliest mistake she has made while on-duty was.
“Well, I popped my tire in a pursuit once; I missed the warning that spike strips were being deployed!” answers Jesse with a chuckle. More questions followed, many of which asking what she intended to do in her new position and whether anything would be changing; ”I promise will not change. I’ll still be here for you all no matter what happens.”
TraceNews was even given an exclusive interview with the new Assistant Sheriff once the deputies had asked their questions. Truth be told, however, many of the questions had already been answered and so we concluded by asking her what her favourite Lady Gaga song was.
“It would have to be either Judas or Bad Romance!” she tells us with a smirk, before bursting out into song over the megaphone. With that, the lighthearted tone of the event set the beginning for the night ahead, as the traditional SD party took place at the exclusive club in San Fierro. See the pictures below!
