Two new police officers sworn in

The Truckee Police Department held a ceremony at Town Hall Friday to swear in its two newest police officers.

Officers Daniel Baraz and Joseph Roman started their 16-week field training program with the department last month. New employees have a one-year probation period as well.

Prior to joining the Truckee department, Officer Baraz was a patrolman in the U.S. Air Force with the 9th Security Police Squadron at Beale Air Force Base in Marysville. Officer Roman was a refinery specialist in Martinez and a reserve police officer for the Vallejo Police Department.

With the two additions, the Truckee Police Department is now at its authorized strength of 25 sworn officers. Full staffing is a goal that many law enforcement agencies in California, and across the country, have found elusive.

The last time the Truckee Police Department was fully staffed was for a one-week period in March, 2006.
