Capt. Mike Martin Capt. Mike Martin

For the first time in four years the Waynesboro Exchange Club is recognizing an officer of the year.

The exchange aims to educate the public on all kinds of child abuse - emotional, physical and sexual.

Monday night, the group celebrated Captain Mike Martin of the Waynesboro Police Department. Exchange member Reo Hatfield says Martin's work in narcotics deserves recognition.

"They have done a bang-up job on working on drugs, reducing the drug activity in our city and have really made a presence for our city, for our police department. The people there know that they can't get away with drugs in this city,” said Hatfield.

Captain Martin says drugs can lead to child neglect and physical danger for children.

The exchange club is seeking new members. For information on how to join, click here.
