New Bowling Green Officers Sworn In

A new batch of officers will soon be patrolling the streets of Bowling Green.

A swearing-in ceremony was held on Nov. 5 at Bowling Green City Hall.

Mayor Pro-Tem Bruce Wilkerson administered the oath to eight new officers.

The officers graduated from the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Nov. 2.

One of the new officers has a strong tie to the force.

"I had an uncle retire, Danny Vickous at the end of July. I got his number--it was something we requested and they happened to give it to me," said Ofc. Jonathan Vickous, with the Bowling Green police.

With the additional officers, Bowling Green has a total of 101 officers.

They have a capacity for 109.

More officers are expected to be hired at the Nov. 6 City Commission meeting. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
