May 22, Paramedic Ken Whittaker was sworn in as a reserve officer with the Winnemucca Police Department. Mayor Di An Putnam administered the oath to Ken, after which Chief Eric Silva pinned Ken's badge. Officer Whittaker is excited to add this newest service opportunity to the long list he is growing. He has served as a reserve deputy for the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office for 4-1/2 years and is excited at the opportunity now to also work with the city. But just remember, the city and county can borrow Ken, but he always comes home to HGH! Congrats, Ken. We're really proud of you and all you will bring to this new position.
