Clearlake Hires New Officers

New Officers

Clearlake, CA – September 4, 2017

At a formal swearing-in ceremony at City Hall, on Thursday, August 31st the City of Clearlake welcomed three new officers to the Clearlake Police Department. Officer Mauricio Barreto and Officer Jonathon Reynolds were sworn in as Police Officers and Officer Melinda Wymer was sworn in as a new Animal Control Officer.

Several experienced officers recently resigned to take positions with other agencies, which created opportunities to hire new officers. According to Acting Chief Tim Celli, “We are proud to bring Officers Barreto and Officer Reynolds onto our team as new police officers, and we are very happy to be bringing on Animal Control Officer Wymer as an additional resource for our Animal Control unit.”

City Manager, Greg Folsom, and Mayor Russ Perdock were in attendance at the swearing in. “The Clearlake Police Department does an amazing job with the resources that they have and Officers Barreto and Reynolds will help us with our goal of improving safety in our community,” said City Manager Folsom. “Animal Control Officer Wymer will be a great asset as well as we increase our capacity by bringing on a second animal control officer.”
