Yeah, this cop knows how to pound the beat in more ways than one!

What an inspiration it must have been for the Houlton middle school band members when police officer Mallory Clayton picked up the sticks!  Yeah, there's no flinching here, she knows exactly how to keep the beat!

Even Chief Tim DeLuca of the Houlton Police Department commented on Facebook that he didn't know how talented Clayton was at drumming, and what a great example she is to our youth!

Rock on Officer Clayton!
