Andrea Saunders Is Among Waterbury, Connecticut’s Finest Who Just Happens To Sing

On tonight’s NYBERG, a shining example of a police officer who loves to sing the National Anthem. Andréa Saunders serves on the Waterbury police force. She wanted to become a police officer because it was a police officer who saved her life when she was a little girl. She and her twin brother were in ten different foster homes before they were separated in their teenage years and then brought back together in Connecticut. Four years ago she was on a call which included a 2-year-old girl in crisis. She saw herself in that child, and now that little girl is now her adopted daughter. Saunders was the department’s first African-American female police officer of the year in 2017. At the end of the interview make sure you listen to her sing.
