Four Federal Way Police Department officers were sworn in at the July 18 City Council meeting: Jae An, Hilary Brehm, Friedrich Jaeger and Robert Bracco.

This is the second group of new hires made by the city this year, and they join the three that assumed duties for the city in May.

Officer Jae An:

An is a lateral police officer. Jae was raised in Federal Way and relocated to New Jersey with his family, tending to their family-owned jewelry store. He previously served as a police officer for two years with the Camden, New Jersey, Police Department. He has formally studied music education and criminal justice, and he is fluent in Korean.

Officer Hilary Brehm:

Brehm recently graduated from the Washington State Police Academy, and she is currently in the department’s field-training program. She was raised in Bonney Lake and took courses in the medical field and worked retail sales prior to becoming an officer.

Officer Friedrich Jaeger:

Jaeger comes as a lateral police officer from Florida. Friedrich served as a deputy sheriff with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office for the past three years, and he earned his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Central Florida.

Officer Robert Bracco:

Officer Bracco was hired as a lateral police officer, previously serving with the University of Washington Police Department. He was drawn to Federal Way because he has friends who work here, and he desired to work at a full-service, municipal agency. Bracco earned his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Central Washington University.
