84-year-old BPD volunteer retires after two decades
BEAUMONT - An 84-year-old Beaumont woman was honored today for her commitment to helping to protect and serve the community.

Wednesday was her last day on the job.
Bloodworth is retiring after 22 years of service at the substation where she's answered phones and took complaints from residents.
Prior to volunteering at the police department, Bloodworth was a surgical nurse.
In honor of her service, the other volunteers presented her with a cake and thanked her for her commitment to officers.
