The Idaho Falls Police Department is excited to welcome four new police officers to the ranks. Officers King, Kinghorn, Norman and Cook were sworn in this morning at a ceremony conducted by Idaho Falls Mayor Rebecca Casper and Chief Bryce Johnson of the Idaho Falls Police Department.

“These four people are some of the finest individuals you will find anywhere,” said Chief Johnson. “I am truly honored to have them here today to be sworn in as Idaho Falls Police Officers.”

Applicants to the Idaho Falls Police Department are subjected to thorough interviews, testing, and background checks. After being selected and prior to being sworn in, officers undergo further testing and a preliminary training process to ensure that they will be successful as law enforcement officers.

Officers Norman, Cook, Kinghorn and King, have all successfully completed these stages and were formally sworn in today as Idaho Falls Police Officers. They also signed the Oath of Office for Idaho Law Enforcement and received their badges, which were pinned on by loved ones.

Officers Norman and Cook are joining IFPD as lateral officers, with previous law enforcement experience from time with the Bonneville County Sherriff’s Office. Norman spent 11 years with Bonneville County as a patrol deputy, jail deputy, and a juvenile detention officer. Cook also spent 11 years with Bonneville County as a patrol deputy, a member of the SWAT Team and is a POST Firearms Instructor.

Officers Kinghorn and King are new to the law enforcement career, also known as probationary officers, and are excited to serve our community in this way. Officer Tyler Kinghorn has just completed six years in the United States Army Reserves. Officer Aaron King is pursuing a criminal justice degree and has held a life-long dream of becoming a police officer.
