In addition to her patrol duties, Officer Pierce has served the department as an advisor for the Colonie’s Police Explorer Post for three years and has been an instructor at the Zone 5 Regional Law Enforcement Training Academy for the last year and a half. Officer Pierce is a graduate of Colonie Central High School and has a Bachelor’s degree from the University At Albany.
Officer Pierce has already started working in the district.
What do you like to do when you’re off duty?
I love taking my two year old German Shepard named Beau to the park. I also enjoy fitness and working out and spending time at my camp in the Adirondacks.
What would students be surprised to know about you?
Students would be surprised to know that although I don’t look it, I’m actually 28 years old.
What do you love about your job?
I love that I get to help kids and it’s something I’m looking forward to doing here in North Colonie.
