Please join us in welcoming the two newest Burleson PD officers to our family. We let them all know how blessed they are to be working in the great community of Burleson! Andrea Evans and Megan Jones were sworn in and presented with their badges during the ceremony on October 30. Family members, Chief Billy Cordell and Deputy Chief Doug Sandifer did the honors. The badge ceremony for new police officers confirm that the new officer is about to become part of a very special family and that it’s a privilege and an honor to wear the badge. The badge is earned, not given. The Burleson police department began in 1960.
