Salt Lake City Police are pleased to announce as part of our continual hiring process, that we have hired 40 new officers. The first 17 of those are lateral officers and started training on Thursday, January 25th. On February 3rd, 23 new officers will join the ranks. This is all part of the effort to replace officers that have retired from the department, and the new positions that the Mayor’s Office and City Council have asked for and approved. We welcome these officers to the SLCPD family and are looking forward to their service in our community.

Thank you everyone for your help on this case. We were able to identify all involved parties in this incident. We would like to note that some people in this photo, including both females, were only witnesses to (and not suspects of) the assault. We were able to determine this because of the tips from the public and our detectives' interviews. Thanks again for all of your support and help.
