The Dalton Police Department welcomed two new officers to the ranks with a ceremony Monday morning at the Police Services Center. Officers Samuel Rosiles and Clinton Travis both received their badges from Chief Jason Parker before taking their oath of office in front of a gathering of family and fellow officers.
Officer Rosiles is a 2010 graduate of Gilmer County High School in Ellijay where he lived for 21 years. He also graduated from the Universal Technical Institute in Orlando, Florida in 2012.
He recently completed his training at the Georgia Public Safety Training Center’s Regional Police Academy in Forsyth.
Officer Travis graduated from Chattanooga’s Central High School in 2001. The Tennessee native has called Ringgold home for the past five years. He graduated from Chattanooga State in 2010 with an associate’s degree in criminal justice and from Dalton State College in 2012 with an associate’s degree in psychology.
Officers Rosiles and Travis are taking part in the Dalton Police Department’s “Mini-Academy” this week before hitting the road with training officers to begin the Field Training Program.
