Norfolk Police Division swears in two newest officers

NORFOLK, Neb. -- A northeast Nebraska community welcomed its newest law enforcement officers Wednesday night.

Brandon Adams and Dylan Vieth were sworn in Wednesday evening at the Norfolk City Council chambers.

Before the men were sworn in, Chief of Police Don Miller spoke to the new officers and their families about the commitment working in law enforcement requires.

"Of all the people who applied for this position, we have two that made it through that," Miller said. "That's only credit to them, but that's credit to the family that raised them because you don't get people with good character if it's not by their upbringing."

The two now begin a 15-week training program at the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Center in Grand Island.

Once they finish training, the new officers will conduct field training alongside officers in Norfolk for several months.
