Wednesday afternoon was a day of celebration and the beginning of a new journey for four people. 

The Moose Jaw Police Service held a Swearing In ceremony to officially welcome the newest recruits to the local agency. 

"We've engaged four new police officers, they will be going to police college for their training and we'll see them back in the city doing their jobs in the summer," explained Chief of Police, Rick Bourassa. "There's a steep learning curve and lots to know, but we'll make sure they are well equipped for that."

He also noted his excitement for the diverse new recruits who come from near and far to the Friendly City.

"This is a really interesting group we have here. They bring different sets of backgrounds with them, very different experiences and some come from different communities."

Bourassa said this allows the police service to be more responsive and effective in our community. 

It was a full room of smiles and excitement not only from the new officers, but also from the current police force and family and friends who were able to attend. 

Heino Izaaks, was a Communications Officer with the local force before completing the hiring process, and said the event was extra special for him because of who was in the crowd.

"My brother and his wife are here. This is one of the few times where I've had family present from home, and for them to make it here for my swearing in. That's probably the cherry on the cake for me."

Izaaks added that he's looking forward to coming back from police college and getting his feet wet with the other new recruits. 

There's a familiar face who was also added, Paul Thunberg from Moose Jaw, who shared some of the same feelings as Izaaks. 

"I'm looking forward to working with the citizens of Moose Jaw as well as working with my new teammates here at the Moose Jaw Police Service. We'll hopefully be a positive team in the community and be good role models," said Thunberg. 

The youngest of the group was Casey Lea, who ventured from a small town in Manitoba. 

"I have a long 20 weeks of college ahead, but it'll be a really good experience. Coming in at a younger age, I think my maturity showed through during the application process, and I think they believe and trust in me which goes both ways. I can't wait to start," Lea added. 

The only female of the bunch was Kristy Tymko, who came from Winnipeg, Manitoba, but has high aspirations to make the people of Moose Jaw proud and has already begun some ideas on how to get involved after she returns from college. 

"The first thing I want to do is get involved in my community. It's one of our core values. So that's the first thing, and possibly get a female rugby team going on here."

All four received a welcome from each speaker at the event who look forward to their return to Moose Jaw.
