The Minden Police Department added to the ranks during a special city council meeting Wednesday.
The lone item on the agenda was to consider the hiring of Jamie Forgey as a police officer. The council unanimously approved the hire.
Forgey told council members she plans to have a long-term career with the department.
Once she begins with the department, she will attend the police academy and become P.O.S.T. certified.
She will also be required to sign a two-year contract with the city.
