CPD Welcomes New Recruits

The Covington Police Department is excited to announce the hiring of three new officers. Over the past of couple weeks, Officer Chance Johnson, Officer Josh Simmons, and Officer Justin McFarlain have all undergone basic training, certifying them in defensive tactics, Taser, firearms, and chemical agents, and will now begin their Field Training Program.

During the Field Training Program, they will learn the skills needed for the job from veteran officers of the Covington Police Department.
We would like to thank Craig Ketelson (Athletic Director for St. Paul’s School) and the entire St. Paul’s School staff for providing one of their facilities for the Defensive Tactics portion of the training! We are very excited, and we ask that you welcome them to the community. CPD is open 24/7. Emergencies 911 Assistance 985-892-8500
