Santa Fe Police Department welcomed the addition of 12 police officers today, comprised of five women and seven men. The two lateral police officers and ten police cadets were sworn in today by Judge Virginia Vigil.  The ceremony was conducted within the guidelines of the current health order with social distancing, the wearing of masks, and metering of people in the Municipal Courtroom.  The police officers successfully completed the hiring process following aggressive recruiting efforts by the Recruiting Unit to fill the Department’s police officer vacancies.

Friends and family of officers who Joined Our Team today attended the ceremony to show their support and witness the police officers recite their oath of office and the presentation of their badge.

The lateral police officers will complete initial training and will soon be assigned to the Field Training Program.  Their completion of field training and assignment to a Patrol Team is anticipated to occur by July 2020.
