Taylorsville hires three new police officers

Last Friday, three new police officers joined the Taylorsville Police Department. Colby Ottley, Grayson Van Leeuwen, and Jonathan Bushnell were sworn in at City Hall. All three of these men recently graduated from the Police Academy.

Thanks to the city council, two of these positions were funded in the budget last July. Here is a photo with Council members Dama Barbour and Jerry Rechtenbach, congratulating the officers.

Following the Swearing In Ceremony, the new officers participated in a training. During the taser training, officers had an opportunity to be tased, in order to understand what it does to someone. Since Chief Del Craig had never experienced a taser before, he volunteered to go first. Below is a video clip of his tasing.
