Today we conducted the Swearing-In Ceremony for Officer Caitlin McBride. The ceremony includes a reading of the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics by all of the sworn officers present.
Our recruiting efforts started early, as Caitlin’s nephew Josh Hensley (3 yrs) joined in as well.
The ceremony includes an official swearing-in by Chief Kevin Vogel
And an official badge-pinning by Caitlin’s mother, Cory.
Caitlin is a true Santa Cruz native. She was born and raised in Santa Cruz and graduated from Harbor High School. With family and close family friends in the business, public safety and law has been part of Caitlin’s life growing up.
Caitlin comes to us after working at the Santa Cruz County Jail for the past 2 years. She enrolled in and completed a 22 week police academy prior to applying at SCPD.
We’re excited to have her as part of our Santa Cruz Police Department family.
Caitlin starts her 18 week Field Training Program tomorrow night.
Please join us in welcoming her aboard.
