Dalton Police Department added two new officers on Tuesday.

The Public Safety Commission unanimously confirmed Officers Evan Driskill and Paul Ledford, both of whom graduated from the Cherokee, GA Police Academy earlier this month.

Officer Ledford, a former United States Marine, worked for Dalton’s Public Works Department before transferring to the DPD. He originally hails from Knoxville.

Officer Driskill, a Kentucky native, holds an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Chattanooga State and will continue his studies at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga while serving on the DPD.

Both officers recently completed the DPD’s field training program.
