It's a day of celebration for the Evansville Police Department.
"It's been a long time coming. A long process, about a year and a half. I was in wait. I was really looking forward and hoping that I would make it, and I made it. It was a blessing, and I'm very happy to be a part of the Evansville Police Department," new officer, Phillip Smith told 14 News.
The new officers said they were excited to start their new jobs to protect and serve the community.
