Nebraska City's newest police office was sworn in Monday night during the City Council meeting.
Jeremiah Campbell, 23, a Nebraska City native, will be attending the Law Enforcement Academy in Grand Island later this summer.
Campbell said he sees the police officer position as a chance to help his family and his community.
“It's an opportunity for job security and a chance to move up,” he said, “and also a chance to keep the city secure and make it a better place when I have a family.”
Campbell is the son of Darryl Campbell and Trish Campbell. His wife, Shelby Powell, is the daughter of Heather Powell.
