A pair of new officers has joined the ranks of the Cairo Police Department.
Clarence Williams, 21, and Jermaine Lamons, 31, successfully completed the Georgia Police Academy earlier this month.
Cairo Police Chief Giovannie Santos swore the men in as officers with C.P.D. on Friday, and introduced them to the Cairo City Council during their regular meeting on Monday evening.
Chief Santos says, ”It was an honor and pleasure to present both officers to the council and mayor. We are lucky to have had both individuals stand up and answer the call to public service, especially during times like these. I have gotten to know both of them and know that they will perform their duties with a compassionate heart and with reverence. I wish them both a long and prosperous career and glad that they chose to serve the citizens of the city we love, the City of Cairo.”
With the addition of the two new officers, Cairo Police has 23 sworn officers, according to Chief Santos. Austin Asbell is a new trainee with the department who will attend the Police Academy next month, and upon completion will round out the police force, which also includes three civilian positions.
