Police Academy graduates receive their new badges after being sworn-in at graduation. 

Six new Titusville Police Officers will hit the streets after the newly hired officers graduated from the Brevard Community College Law Enforcement Academy on January 4th.


The graduation ceremony was held at the Brevard Community College’s Titusville Campus.


These six new officers will help fill vacancies created from three retirements, and three new additional police officer positions created by the City to help meet growth. TPD now has a total of 90 sworn officers on the force.


“These new officers are the best of the best”, said Chief Tony Bollinger. “We chose a diverse group of officers to help match our diverse community” he added. Along with criteria police officer candidates must meet to get hired, matching minority candidates to reflect the city’s minority population is also an important priority to our department.


“We put an incredible effort into hiring new officers, and it shows by the quality of people we end up with” said Commander David Butler, who oversees our hiring and training process.


The new officers were sworn in by Chief Bollinger and “pinned” with their new badges in front of family & friends immediately after receiving their certificates of completion from the Academy staff.
