Joy of Lyndonville is already well known in Albion and Medina, where he is a trainer and co-owner of the Hustl House gym. He will continue at Hustl House while starting a new career as a police officer.

“It is a really great opportunity to serve the community even more,” Joy said.

Ferris is a 2017 Albion graduate. He has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from SUNY Brockport. He has been working for Keeler Construction.

“This is a great way to make a difference,” Ferris said about working as a police officer.

His grandfather, Richard Ferris, was a deputy with the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department.

Tanner Ferris is grateful for the chance to work for the Medina PD.

“This is a smaller community where you can make a difference and not just be a number,” he said.

The two officers will take a six-month police academy starting Monday at Niagara County Community College then they do field training with the Medina PD.
