A Greenwood man will work nights and weekends for free for at least the next several months, but his goal is for a future career.

Adam Bandy, 25, wants to be a full-time police officer, but he’ll work for free first.

Bandy is one of the Greenwood Police Department’s five reserve officers and is in training to patrol Greenwood’s streets. He’ll work as much as he can until he’s fully trained, and after that he’ll work regular shifts as a road officer when he’s available.
