Four new officers were sworn into the UCF Police Department family this week.
Fellow officers and UCFPD staff, family, friends and members of the community joined the celebration Wednesday.
UCF Police Chief Richard Beary swore the officers in and concluded the ceremony with some simple advice.
“Treat people with respect,” Chief Beary said. “Use the authority that you have honorably and when in doubt, if you wouldn’t do it in front of your mom and dad, don’t do it,”
The new additions bring UCFPD’s sworn total to 74 officers. Once the new officers finish their classroom training in September, they will be paired with a patrol officer to experience field training on the roads. Each officer will be assigned to the patrol division once their training is completed.
