[ARCHIVED] Black History Month - Lt. Sherrie Carruth

LT Sherrie Carruth

It's Black History Month and we want to highlight some of our officers, first responders, and employees.

Lt. Sherrie Carruth is one of our most Senior Officers.  She’s a wealth of information regarding the law enforcement world and is a valuable asset to OPD.  When you talk with her, you can quickly tell she has a passion for making a difference in our community. 

She is a native West Texan born and raised in Midland, graduating from Midland Lee High School.  Lt. Carruth began her career with OPD in August of 1992, graduating from the Permian Basin Law Enforcement Academy. During her tenure, she has served as a Patrol Officer, Field Training Officer, Hostage Negotiator, Sergeant with the Patrol Services Bureau, and Public Information Officer with the Chief’s Office. In October of 2017, She was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant and currently, commands the Criminal Investigation Division. 

When it comes to the African American Culture, Lt. Carruth said, “I’m proud of family ties, upbringing, fellowship, and cooking, handed down by my great grandparents and  grandparents. I miss my grandmothers, they were literally the glue that held the families together.” 

We are thankful for Lt. Carruth's loyalty to this department!
