From the Covington Police Department:

We are excited to announce the hiring of six (6) new police officers, all of who will be starting the Slidell Regional Police Academy on Monday.

We want to give a big thank you to Mayor Mark Johnson, the Covington City Council, and the citizens of Covington for supporting our department and allowing us to bring these great additions to the CPD family.

Please join us in welcoming the following new officers:

Brian Ledkins
Cyrus Kety

This week, our newly hired Recruits began their Police Academy Training, put on by the Slidell Regional Police Training Academy. Yesterday, they started their physical training, where they went through hours of grueling physical exercises and worked together as a team to complete the training.

As always, we would like to give a big thank you to the Slidell Regional Police Training Academy for giving our officers the best training and preparing them for life as law enforcement professionals.
