Deputy, Justin Maxfield of the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office gets behind a stolen vehicle.  After activating his lights, the vehicle makes a right and continues for half a block before coming to a stop.  The female driver is taken into custody.  The Ford Ranger was being sold by an elderly couple in a town an hour away, and was stolen by a female who matches the drivers description. The woman took the vehicle for a test drive and never returned.  The driver admits to having a crack cocaine problem and claims a guy let her borrow the Ford Ranger.

Why Law EnforcementI had long aspired to be in law enforcement, originally wanting to go into a federal agency.  I was fresh out of college and needed a job immediately when I was hired by my home town Sheriff’s Office.  I fell in love with patrol work and 15 years later have no desire to work anywhere but in a patrol car everyday.
First Arrest 
Best part of the jobMy favorite part of the job is that no day is ever “routine”.  I never know what to expect or how things are going to go, and I love that.
HobbiesOutside of work I enjoy spending time with my family (Mom, daughter, niece, and nephew), boxing, hiking, and exercising.  I like to do things that not everyone can say they have done in their lives.
