Andalusia Police Sgt. Anthony Hattaway was named officer of the week.

Hattaway has been employed with the Andalusia Police Department since July 2008, where he began his career in law enforcement.

Hattaway has served as patrolman and was promoted to patrol sergeant by Chief Paul Hudson.

He is currently working under the direction of Lt. Tim Stallworth and supervises officers on D-Shift.

He makes his house outside of Andalusia, with his wife and two daughter.

The family enjoys spending quality time together, hunting and fishing.

Hattaway said said his favorite night to work is Sunday, “because the long part of the week is over.”

He yells for the Crimson Tide and enjoys college football, but his favorite pastime is hunting.

Dove, deer, or turkey he enjoys hunting them all and his favorite dish is smothered fried quail.

With his love of hunting, Hattaway’s dream job is to be a conservation enforcement office, and he hopes to fulfill his dream one day.

Hudson described Hattaway as “dedicated, loyal and honest.”

“I hope that Sgt. Hattaway is still with the APD long after I’m retired,” he said. “Hattaway is a great officer and supervisor. I never have to worry about him or his shift. He’s got a very good young shift and sometimes young officers need reigning in but their shift works well together, trains well together, and that comes from great leadership that is shown by Sgt. Hattaway.”
