The Ponca City Police Department officially added three new officers to its lineup.

The trio graduated from the CLEET (Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training) Basic Police Academy in Ada, OK recently. They were sworn to duty as they were administered the Police Officer’s Oath by Municipal Judge William Kirkpatrick.

Family, friends and coworkers were in the courtroom to see Caleb Landis, Dylan Barabasz and Ben Mays receive their badges and recite the oath.

Barabasz was pinned by longtime family friend Police Lieutenant Kevin Jeffries. Caleb Landis was pinned by his father, Sergeant Fred Landis. Ben Mays was pinned by his father, Major Pat Mays of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

The new officers began the Field Training Officers program last Monday.
