  • Captain Kelly L. Walker, Services Division Commander
  • Captain J.W. Oliver, Jr., Patrol Division Commander
  • Mrs. Jeanie Surratt, Office Manager
  • Officer Walter E. Wallace, Patrol Officer (former WHS School Resource Officer & DARE Officer)

“These outstanding individuals represent a combined 150 years of loyal service to the Waynesboro community.  Throughout their careers, they have selflessly given of themselves to protect the quality of life that our citizens expect and enjoy today,” said Waynesboro Police Chief Michael Wilhelm. “I was lucky to have been mentored by each one of them and I feel privileged to be able to call them colleagues.”
