Captain K. G. McKeown “pinned the badge” for two new Terrell Police Officers following their oaths of office in the City of Terrell Council chambers this morning, witnessed by a host of friends and family.
On Wednesday July 27, 2016 at 10:00 The Terrell Police held a “swearing in” ceremony for the two new police recruits. Both successfully completed the East Texas Police academy and graduated with high honors on Friday July 22, 2016 in Kilgore, TX.
Tiffany Lyons and Joe Keen also successfully passed the T.C.O.L.E. State Peace Officer licensing exam scoring in the ninetieth percentile on Tuesday July 26, 2016. A vigorous field training program is the next challenge for the new blue bloods with new patrol shifts beginning today.
Tiffany Lyons was certified as class valedictorian of the graduating class of Basic Police Officer Course (BPOC) # 298 and Joe Keen graduated with “top three” honors.
“We are extremely proud of these two officers and their accomplishments. We look forward to many years of serving together in our agency, said Captain A. D. Sansom.
