Clarksburg Police Department Swears in Five Probationary Patrolmen


On Tuesday, January 22, 2019 5 new probationary Patrolman were sworn in during a ceremony held in Clarksburg City Council Chamber. The officers were sworn in by Clarksburg City Clerk, Annette Wright, with the ceremony being led by Clarksburg Police Chief Robert Hillard and Deputy Chief Jason Snider. The probationary officers will begin their duty on February 1, 2019 as Field Training Officers before heading to the State Police Academy in April, 2019.

City Manager, Martin Howe expressed the importance of family and relying on your fellow officers in the law enforcement profession, “It’s an outstanding job that is ever changing, and every day is different, but one thing you have to rely upon is your family, and rely on your field training officer and other fellow officers for guidance, they will always lead you in the right direction”.

Upon completion of the WV State Police Academy, the officers will finish out their 12 weeks of required field training.

Chief of Police, Robert Hillard explained how these new hires will not only benefit the department, but the overall community. “With these additional officers being hired, patrols will be shored up to give relief to officers with manpower, which ultimately adds police presence to the community.”

A sixth patrolman, who is a rehire, will be sworn in at a later date and will also begin duty on February 1, 2019. The 6th patrolman will be assigned directly into patrol, and will be able to bypass field training, as he had previously been employed as a Clarksburg Police Officer. A seventh individual has been offered employment with the department following his college graduation in May.
