Hydia Lockhart began her policing career with Louisville Metro Police Department in 1999. During her 20 year career with LMPD she worked as an undercover Flex Detective, with emphasis on narcotics, a D.A.R.E. Instructor, a District Resource Officer, focusing on community relations, a patrol officer, and alongside Recruitment. During that 20 year tenure Officer Lockhart experienced multiple tragedies, a bit of laughter, and the function and dysfunction of the human process. Grateful to have survived such a journey, Officer Lockhart retired but continues to police with the small Department of Northfield. Prior to Officer Lockhart‘s policing career she studied fine arts at Savannah College of Art and Design, with a major in Painting and Illustration. Despite Officer Lockhart’s field of study she feels we all have a duty not only to ourselves , but to each other to be, if nothing else, a small light in the absence of humanity.
Please note that Officer Lockhart is in no way shape or form representing or speaking on behalf of her current employer, Northfield Police Department, or previous employer, LMPD. This discussion will be based solely on her experience as a black, female officer with over 21 years of policing. These views may not be shared by, nor do they represent, fellow officers or Agencies with whom she is or has been affiliated.
