Sometimes the right job finds you.

Emmaus Police Officer Melanie Sayres joined the department soon after completing the Reading Police Academy and knew she was in the right place.

“It feels right. I can’t describe it,” she said of her job with the Emmaus Police Department in an interview recently.

“I just see it as a challenging career. I can’t see myself doing anything else,” Sayres said.

So far, Officer Sayres is enjoying being “on the job” to borrow a pop culture description of work as a police officer.
