The Montrose Police Department swore in three new officers Monday, backfilling vacancies left in the agency, according to a city press release.
Dakota Shea-Shelly, Mariah Smith and Marcina Sarmiento officially began duty after 16 weeks of peace officer training in Grand Junction.
“We are very excited that we have Dakota, Mariah and Marcina coming on board,” Police Chief Blaine Hall said in the release. “I commend them for completing the Western Colorado Peace Officer Academy and look forward to their training here at the Montrose Police Department. They will be a great addition to the team.”
