"I felt led to be a Police Officer. I had always wanted to serve my community in some way. When I met other Officers that work for the Fayetteville Police Department, they encouraged me to apply. I had been working at a grocery store for many years and was very unhappy. I was unable to pay for school and heard that Fayetteville had its own academy. I prayed about it for a while and applied. I actually got denied once and it drove me to apply again a few months later. Never quitting, I am now a Detective in Property Crimes. You have to go through the Valley to Climb the Mountain."

 "My father has been with the Police Department since before I was born, so I have grown up running   through the halls or sitting at his desk and listening to old war stories. The more I listened, the more I   became intrigued with the lifestyle of being a cop; I thought it was amazing how strangers from all walks of   life could come together day in and day out and instill a certain level of trust that can only be described as a   family. That is what made me want to join this particular department, because out of all the other   departments in North Carolina, this is the only one that makes me feel like I’m part of a family. It has made   me feel that way when I was younger and still does."


SNYDER CANDICE_0491K9 Officer Snyder

 "From a young age, I always wanted to be a police officer. Growing up, I watched old western movies with my grandfather and I always admired the characters who portrayed law enforcement officers.   My grandparents knew this about me so they bought me toy guns and sheriff’s clothing to wear so I could chase my sister around the house and somewhat fulfill my dreams as a child. During my preschool graduation, each student was dressed like the desired profession they choose to be when they grew up. I stood up in front of the crowd to proudly say, “My name is Candice Snyder and I want to be a Cop!” I wanted to work with others who were in need or who needed help but were not sure where to find it. Fayetteville Police Department has provided me with that opportunity."
