Former television news reporter Azenith Smith recently joined the Livermore Police Department communications team, following a seven-year run reporting in the South Bay for KTVU Fox 2 News.
Sgt. Steve Goard made the announcement in a video posted to social media last week. In addition to handling media inquiries, Smith said she will also manage the department's social media accounts and take part in community engagement programs.
"You'll most likely see me out in the community and, if you do, come and say hi," Smith said. "I can't wait to meet everybody and I'm really very excited about this new opportunity."
Originally from Milpitas, Smith has lived in Livermore for five years.
