16 New Police Officers Sworn In

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Patrolling all Stateline neighborhoods should get a little easier now that Rockford’s police department is nearly back to full force.

Today, 16 new recruits were sworn in at First Lutheran Church. Many of these men and women have been vying for a spot on the squad for the last 4 months, beating out hundreds of other applicants.

Chief Epperson is still trying to fill 6 openings which would bring the total number of officers to 285.
