Lisa A. Martin 

Lisa started her career in law enforcement communications in 1988 when she was hired to fill her retiring Grandmother’s position at Smithfield Police Department.  In the early 1990’s she moved from communications to records management and obtained her instructor certification for the Virginia Criminal Information Network.  

In 2007 Lisa left Smithfield PD to open her own bakery and stayed there until January 2012 when she returned to work in law enforcement at the Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office records division.
