Lubbock Police Department gains 10 new officers

Posted: Updated:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The force of the Lubbock Police Department got a little stronger on Friday.

In a graduation ceremony, Lubbock Police welcomed ten new officers. They are part of the 2010 Bravo class and completed 23 weeks of training.

"My dad was prior law enforcement and I can't think of a better way to serve my community than to literally risk my life for it," said Philip Standefer, Lubbock Police Officer.

The new graduates will spend the next twenty weeks in field training before they hit the streets on their own. Fourteen cadets started training this week as part of the department's Charlie class. The department is giving an entrance exam Saturday morning.

The recruiting efforts are part of the department's push to fill vacant openings.

The following new LPD officers graduated Friday from the Lubbock Police Academy:

  • Brandon Aven
  • Michael Irby
  • Christopher Key
  • Joseph McReynolds
  • Ross Quarles
  • Josiah Scully
  • Collin Sherley
  • Philip Standefer
  • Russell Thompson
  • William Trotter
