SRPD Ranger Squad Quarterly Report

By Ranger Officer Perkins

I would like to start this quarter’s article by welcoming our newest addition to the Ranger Squad, Sgt. Ricky Gwaltney, badge no. 231. Sgt. Gwaltney was a ranger with us back in 2008–09, was promoted to sergeant, worked on patrol and has returned to be ranger sergeant. He has already shown us a positive direction in serving the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.
