The first black female investigator, sergeant and lieutenant at the Barrow County Sheriff's Office, Lt. Faye Spaulding, is living her unique version of the American dream as her critical role in the community was seemingly tailor-made specifically for her.

With an unwavering love for others and a warm and motherly disposition felt by everyone she encounters, Spaulding, better known as "Mama Faye," never meets a stranger. Given the turbulence of the times, especially for police officers, Faye's warmth and love for humanity hardly goes unnoticed.
