OVILLA - Police Chief Mike Moon hired Mario Ortegon to be a new full-time police officer, according to his announcement at the Ovilla City Council on Nov. 10.

Ortegon has two years of experience as a reserve officer in Princeton and in Hood County, and nine years of work experience in animal control for Hood County.

Ortegon takes the full-time position following the resignation of Officer Sherry Arriola, who returned to work in the Navarro County jail.

Moon has known Ortegon since he was a teenager in the Police Explorer group sponsored by the Cedar Hill Police Department.

'I was the first police officer Mario rode with when he was a Police Explorer, and now I'm the first to offer him a full-time position as a police officer,' Moon said.
