GREAT FALLS -

Great falls Police Force welcomed in a brand new officer and he is our third from the state of Iowa. Police and city officials gathered at the City Commission Chambers for a very special occasion.

"We are welcoming our newest Jeffery Parks, Badge number 308. and he started his process with us a few month ago. And he is actually one of 3 that have come to us from cedar rapids, Iowa they were all high school buddies," says Lt. Jack Allen.

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. I was up here and 2 of my best friends in the world are police officers up here and when I left law enforcement in Iowa they said you need to come back and be with us up here," says Park.

Just to get to today, park had to go through Great Falls Police Departments tough evaluation process.

"A written test and a physical ability test that challenge you both mentally a physically. To basically test your physical and mental ability to stay focused under pressure and to have the physical aptitude to run and possibly apprehend suspects or free people from a motor wreck," explains Park.

And Park's family and friends are not the only folks here in Great Falls happy to see him on the force.

"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. Whenever we're down man power it puts more strain on the remaining officers and stuff. So everybody is glad to see somebody come in and fill that spot," explains Lt. Allen.

Officer Jeffery Park, also said he loves Great Falls and is more than ready to hit the streets and get to work.
