It's a scenario out of every parent's worst dreams -- a toddler separated from his or her parents, confused and scared. Officer Jessie McMahon was one of the first to arrive on such a scene in Veterans Memorial Park earlier this year...thankfully the child was reunited with the parents shortly thereafter. "It was really great to see the community come together to help locate the mother," said McMahon.
It’s public service like this that attracted Officer McMahon to join La Vergne Police. Growing up, she looked up to both of her grandfathers -- one served as a Davidson County Deputy and the other with TWRA, so it was no surprise that Jessie would join law enforcement as well. A newcomer to the department, McMahon joined the city in August 2015. Since graduating from Tennessee Law Enforcement Academy, Officer McMahon can be seen patrolling our city limits as well as assisting our community with a number of issues.
In a job field mostly dominated by men, Officer McMahon is one of 4 women who are currently working for the department. La Vergne is lucky to have an officer like Jessie McMahon who is helping change the traditional perception of Police Officers.
