There are three new police officers who will soon be patrolling the streets of Chico.
The Chico Police Department swore in three new officers Tuesday morning. Officer Cale Smith joins the department from Glenn County, Officer Spencer Parker comes from the Butte County Sheriff's Department and Officer Daniel Wilson come to Chico from the Stockton Police Department.
Chief Mike Dunbaugh says "it is fantastic hiring three lateral officers that have been successful in other departments and they've chosen to come to work in our department."
The department has two more positions to fill, and then will be back at full capacity. Three other members of the Chico Police Department received promotions during Tuesday morning's ceremony.
