Matthews Police Captain Garland Amos believes in caring for his family and for years his extended family has been the people of Matthews. After serving for 29 years, as a police officer in High Point and Matthews, Garland will retire later this month.
“Every day I have tried to make a difference in Matthews. Sure we have to sometimes deal with people in negative circumstances but I have tried to say a positive word, give a pat on the back or just help someone every day. My job has been to protect and to serve the community and here in Matthews we take that responsibility of providing community service seriously,” he recently commented.
Garland never wanted to be anything but a police officer. Family members served as U.S. Marshals, FBI agents and in NCIS.
