Continuing our Meet the Ellsworth Police Department Series, WDEA's Chris Popper talked with the "new guy" Officer Shawn Merchant. Officer Merchant joined the EPD in December 2015 and works nights. He tells us why he wanted to come work in Ellsworth, what he enjoys most about working nights, the problems facing Ellsworth and what he likes to do in his spare time.

Officer Merchant used to be a DJ, and loves pizza! He also coached at Sumner Memorial High School where he went to high school.
