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.

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.
