Four recruits take oath, join Claremore Police Department


Claremore Police Department’s newest recruits were sworn in during a regular city council meeting Monday. 
Family members, friends and community residents attended the ceremony to congratulate the officers on their certifications.
Claremore Police Chief Stan Brown said he is looking forward to working with the new recruits.
“I’m excited about this group. All of them have local ties to the community,” said Brown. “This is not just a place where they come to have a job, but where they live. Each officer wants to do his or her best to protect Claremore residents and help the area remain a great place to live.” 
Brown said before recruits are sworn in, they have to first meet basic requirements, including a background check, drug screening and personal interviews. 
The next step in the process involves Council Law Enforcement Education Training (CLEET). CLEET is a 16-week police academy funded by the state, said Brown. 
He said once cadets return from the academy and are hired, Claremore PD performs a 16-week field training course, which is basically on-the-job training.
“Officers are monitored during (the field training) by supervising officers to make sure they are following all procedures,” said Brown. “Once they pass the training, we can then begin the process of recruiting.
He said the recruiting ceremony is special because of the effort each cadet puts forth to become an officer.
“Each one of these recruits worked really hard to get here and I’m proud of all of them,” said Brown.
