The Willow Park Police Department held a ceremony Thursday for the promotion of two of its officers — Anne Carbone and Clarissa Wolfe.
Carbone was promoted to sergeant and Wolfe was promoted to corporal, and both were given their badges at the ceremony.
“Sgt. Carbone joined the department in April after a lifelong career in law enforcement. She graduated from the Weatherford College Law Enforcement Academy and began working for the Parker County Sheriff’s Office in 1993,” according to a release from the city of Willow Park. “She was the department’s first female SWAT officer, an advanced crime scene investigator, the public information officer and worked across many divisions, including her favorite positions in criminal investigations, the fugitive unit and special crimes. Carbone has also served on the boards for Crime Stoppers and Freedom House.”
According to the city, Carbone retired from the sheriff’s office in July 2014, but returned to law enforcement in March 2017 where she joined the Fort Worth Marshal’s office. Carbone holds a Master Peace Officer license and is a field training officer and licensed instructor.
“Cpl. Wolfe has dreamed of being a police officer since the sixth grade and began her law enforcement career as a correctional officer at the Mineral Wells Pre-Parole Facility in 2012,” according to the release. “She joined the staff at the Parker County Jail in 2013 and enrolled in the Weatherford College Law Enforcement Academy in 2016. Wolfe attended classes at the college at night while working at the jail during the day.”
Wolfe joined the WPPD in January 2018, according to the release.
“Her favorite part of the job is when she is able to interact with children. She loves teaching them that police officers aren’t scary and are always here to help,” according to the city of WP. “Congratulations to these two supervisors.”
