SAVANNAH, GA -

Savannah is about to have 11 new officers on the street.

The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department held a Badge Pinning Ceremony for 11 of its newest officers in the Squad Room at Police Headquarters.

The eight men and three women completed 11 weeks of state-mandated training at the Georgia Public Safety Training Center in Garden City, followed by an additional six weeks of Patrol School at the SCMPD Training Center.  

Officers tell News 3 they are looking forward to being on the beat and helping the public.

"I believe that's one of the most important things the police officers can do," said Officer Matthew Davis. "They have the image of just sitting in a car and answering calls. Instead we can actually get involved in people's lives."

"I like helping people," said Officer Diandra Sabb. "I like helping the community and I'm just glad I'm working for the Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department. I really love this city."

The new officers get the weekend off before starting at their new precincts Monday.

Congratulations to officers Nikki Cloer, Matthew Davis, Kelsey Downham, Michael Dunne, Stephen Dupuis, Ronnie Hamilton, Austin Neumann, Kenneth Redfield, Derrick Roberson, Diandra Sabb and Stephen Santoro.
