FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) – The Fairborn Police Department swore in its newest member Monday.

Officer Joshua Lightner joined the force Monday after serving with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office as a corrections officer since 2013.

“While working at the Sheriff’s Office, I was able to talk with a lot of people and I found I wanted to help others through public relations and community service,” said Lightner. “Helping others motivated me to want to become an officer; I am very driven and disciplined and ready for the challenge and responsibility that comes with serving my community.”
