Newly sworn in officer Jeffery Park is no stranger to police work and is one of 3 new officers to come to us from the state of Iowa.

"It feels really good to be back in law enforcement in the community. We love Great Falls, my family and I have visited several times.

"We're actually filling vacancies, we're not increasing our number of officers. we're bringing us up to our allotted 85 officers is where we are at.
