HPD brings a familiar face back to the force

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The Hattiesburg Police Department (HPD) sworn in Ross Kinsey Tuesday who used to work for the department as a patrol and DUI officer.

Kinsey left HPD to work for the Lamar County School District Police Department, but decided to come back.

"I missed being in Hattiesburg. I missed working for the citizens of Hattiesburg and the community here. My heart was here, so I came back," said Kinsey.

Kinsey worked for HPD from 2011-14. He worked as a school resource officer at the Lamar County School District Police Department for the last three years.

"I got to work real close with the school district and the teenagers in the school system. I got to know a lot of them and the issues they're facing, and be able to bring that to HPD to help bridge that gap still between police officers and the citizens of Hattiesburg and the community itself," said Kinsey.

Kinsey said he wants to become a DUI officer again, and work his way up to sergeant, and to follow the ranks from there.
