SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Sixteen new police officers were sworn into the South Bend Police Department on Wednesday at the monthly Board of Public Safety meeting.
The cadets were part of biggest graduating class of cadets in nearly 40 years.
The cadets trained for 17 weeks, most of it here in South Bend. Previously, cadets would have to travel across the state.
While it was a special day for the cadets, for some it was made even more special, now having the chance to work with family.
Officer Terry Redden had his badge pinned by his brother, who works as a parole agent for the Indiana Department of Corrections in the South Bend district.
South Bend Police officials say at the rate officers are joining, they'll be fully staffed by the summer.
