FPD bids farewell to long-time employee, Cathye Schafer

Post Date:12/14/2018 11:00 AM

Today the Department bids farewell to a beloved, long-time employee. Cathye Schafer started her career with the Franklin Police Department as a Dispatcher in 1995, later transferring to the Department’s Records Unit.

Born and raised in Nashville, Cathye is a graduate of Hillsboro High School. Since then, she has also called Fairview and Lyles home. Cathye’s lifetime of public service includes time as a Reserve Police Officer with the Fairview Police Department, a First Responder with Fairview Fire, and a Dispatcher with both Fairview and Williamson County.

“Cathye’s tenure and contributions will not be forgotten,” said Chief Deborah Faulkner. “We’ll miss her and wish her all the best in this new chapter.”

Cathye says that she’ll enjoy more time with her husband Steve and her horse, Fancy — but will miss the people she’s worked with through the years.
