Brandi Valverde

Officer Brandi Valverde is the Eldora Police Department's newest officer.

Growing up battling her siblings as the fifth oldest of 13 kids, Brandi Valverde had to learn to be tough. Now she's translating that toughness into catching lawbreakers in Eldora.

Valverde said she first considered a career in law enforcement after an incident that brought police to her home as a child in Union.
