Two new police grads are being welcomed to the ranks of the LPS.

On Tuesday, the first Officer Graduation Ceremony of 2021 saw Constable Gerrilee Boon and Constable Dayton Pagliericci sworn in after an accelerated training period because of their previous law enforcement experience.

Both graduated from the Cadet program in 2019 and served in the role of Community Peace Officers.

The grad ceremony was less formal than usual and much smaller as COVID-19 restrictions didn’t allow any family members to participate.

The new constables were sworn in by Judge Greg Maxwell.

Maxwell noted they begin their careers at a time when law enforcement agencies are under greater scrutiny than ever before.
