Department Swears In Lateral Officer, Reserve Officer, and VIPS Members

Earlier this week, Police Chief Frank Carter swore in one lateral Officer, one reserve Officer, and two new Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) members during a private ceremony at Police Headquarters. 

Tyler Bohannon, a certified Peace Officer, will be joining the Department’s Patrol Division.  Tyler previously served as a Police Officer with the Wichita Falls Police Department. 

Recent SAPD retiree Alfred Rios was sworn in as a Reserve Police Officer.  Rios will play an active role in the Department’s Honor Guard.   

Ron Juhl and Stephen Capers  were also sworn in as members of the Department’s VIPS program; which provides citizens with an opportunity to support the efforts of the Department’s sworn and civilian personnel with a variety of tasks.
