Posted: Updated:

The Elkins Police Department has hired a new officer.

Aaron Lantz is a native of Lost Creek and no stranger to law enforcement.

Lantz said he has several family members in law enforcement, and wanted to follow in their footsteps.

"I have a lot of family around and I went to school around here, and once I saw that they were hiring I thought it would be a perfect fit. I consider myself blessed to work here," Lantz said.

Lantz will go the state police academy for 16 weeks of training followed by eight months of probationary work.
