This week, we want to highlight Sergeant Eddie Vallejo who has been working at the Odessa Police Department for almost 30 years.
Sgt. Vallejo is proud of his Hispanic roots. He believes everyone should celebrate and be proud of their heritage!
He is fluent in Spanish and that certainly comes in handy here in Odessa, especially when it comes to helping our citizens. He also enjoys getting to know people from other cultures who share a similar language. He says some people don't realize there are different types of Spanish depending if someone is from Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Mexico, or some other Latin country.
His favorite foods are tacos and menudo!
