After a few weeks on the job, new Camp Verde Town Marshal Nancy Gardner said she’s getting into the swing of things.

Camp Verde Marshal Nancy Gardner has been busy learning operational procedures at the Camp Verde Marshal’s Office since taking over the top position Feb. 27. Gardner will host a meet-and-greet Wednesday, March 28, at CVMO from 5 until 6 p.m.Gardner officially started at the end of February, replacing former Town Marshal Dave Smith, who retired at the end of 2011. Gardner was selected out of around 80 applicants for the job.

Gardner, originally from North Dakota, recently spent several years working for the Avondale Police Department, where she worked with the SWAT team and several other department programs. Before that, Gardner served as an officer in Gilbert.

Gardner said she had a little difficulty finding a place to live for her and her husband, Mark, a retired Mesa police officer, but now they have a home in town, and they’re starting to settle in.

“The people are so welcoming,” Gardner said. “I’m really excited to be starting a career here.”
