The Chico Police Department welcomed three new police officers Tuesday.
This particular class of recruits joins the force after renewed efforts by the department to competitively recruit new officers to Chico.
The new officers, Cory Barrow, Oscar Gonzalez, and Derek Ament, were sworn in by the Chico City Clerk Tuesday morning, and then had their badges pined by their significant others and children.
The three new officers bring a total of 23 years' experience in law enforcement with them to the Chico Police Department.
