Saginaw Police Department adds 3 new officers, awards officer of the year

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW COUNTY (WJRT) - (05/23/14) - The Saginaw Police Department held its annual awards and memorial ceremony Friday, and welcomed its three newest officers.

Budget cuts put the police department staffing level at 55, but there have been several retirements since the beginning of the year. Those departures actually put the department below the 55 level, so three new officers were sworn in Friday.

Police chief Brian Lipe credits other local police agencies and the state police for helping reduce violent crime in the city and hopes the department will eventually grow again.

The Saginaw Police officer of the year award went to detective Matt Gerow, who worked on a number of the city's most violent crimes.
