Officer Kayla Bruno, originally from Covington, GA, joined the University of West Georgia Campus Police Department in 2014. She graduated from the University of West Georgia (UWG) in 2013 with a BS in Criminology. While at the UWG, Kayla served as an intern with the City of Carrollton Police Department.
