New Cheyenne Police Officers Sworn In, More Officers Sought
Two new Cheyenne Police officers have been sworn in.
That is according to a post on the Cheyenne Police Department Facebook page. They were sworn in on Monday at the Cheyenne Public Safety Center and will now attend the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy in Douglas.
The post offered these backgrounds on the pair of new officers, Blake Martin and Jason Tretter:
''Officer Tretter is a native of Cheyenne. He moved to Guernsey, Wyoming to begin his law enforcement career at the Platte County Sheriff’s Office and is now returning to be near family and serve his hometown. “Cheyenne is home – the people here are very caring, and I’m excited to be back.”
Officer Martin moved to Cheyenne from northern California where he previously served in the military. He also shared that family ties and a desire to give back to the community motivated his decision to join the department.
“These officers have the community-oriented mindset that aligns with the culture of our department,” said Chief of Police, Mark Francisco. “We are very proud to welcome them to our team.''
The post also says that the department is looking for new officers to serve with the CPD. The next round of testing will be on Sept. 13 and 14 at the Public Safety Center.
