SHERMAN, TX -- Sherman police recognized a new officer Monday at a special ceremony.

A graduation was held Monday afternoon for Officer Jamie Bunetto, who graduated from the field training program and will now be working as a Sherman police officer.

Bunetto, who has a military background, worked as a police officer in Lubbock for four years.

He says Sherman PD was a perfect match for him when he was looking for a new job.

"One day we were driving through Sherman and I thought, you know, let's drive by the police department and let me stop in there. I went inside and talked to an officer for about 45 minutes, felt comfortable, and it felt like home. So I didn't focus on anywhere else other than Sherman."

Bunetto say he is excited to start working in Sherman and hopes to eventually retire here.
