New Longview Police Officers Sworn in

The Longview Police Department is quickly filling up squad cars, as four new patrol officers were sworn in on Friday.

In an afternoon ceremony, one woman and three men took the oath to serve and protect.

They were then presented with their badges of office.

A couple of the new officers come to Longview after serving at other departments in Mineola and U.T. Tyler.

With the swear-in, the department is only four officers short from being fully staffed, and another four officers are scheduled to be sworn-in in four weeks.
