MINT HILL, NC – The first employee for the Mint Hill Police Department, Marsha Brackett recalls assisting with applications and background checks during the initial stages of the Mint Hill Police Department’s beginnings. A longtime resident of Mint Hill, Marsha recalls riding her bike to Perry’s market as a child for a coke and peanuts.  “I still enjoy the small town feel,” she says.  “I enjoy giving back to the town where I was raised in some small way and collaborating with the officers who take care of our town.”

Marsha Bracket started working at the age of thirteen and still loves working today.  Known for being straightforward with her work, Marsha also loves putting a smile on others’ faces. Today, Marsha serves as a civilian employee for the police department where she fills many roles. As the Assistant to the Chief of Police, her duties include ensuring the department stays within compliance to SBI and FBI standards, and she is the point of contact for agency audits. Personnel files are maintained by Marsha on every department employee, and she is the department’s Terminal Agency Coordinator for record sharing of stolen items as well as missing or wanted persons. 

On top of these important duties, Marsha is frequently called upon to assist with everyday office operations, like filling in answering phones, assisting with the VIPS program, or simply maintaining duty supplies. Officers and staff know if you need something “go see Marsha,” who also acts a liaison to HR and Finance departments with the Town. “I love helping others, but if it wasn’t for the officers, my job would not be nearly as fun!” says Marsha.
