The Sherman Police Department is sending three recruits to the Texoma Regional Police Academy. Chris Carson, Aaron Vines, and Rob Ballew are all new hires. The trio has been learning the ropes around the department and Monday they will begin their journey through the academy and field training program.
Rob Ballew says he's hoping this challenge will be one of a lifetime.
"Absolutely I hope it will be, I just hate to think they just put anyone out there on the street."
The Sherman Police Department still needs three more officers to make it to full staff.
