New EPD Officer Sworn In

- The newest addition to the Erie Police Department was sworn in by Erie Mayor Joe Sinnott this morning. In front of friends and family Brian Barber took his oath to become the next city of Erie police officer.

Barber says he's following in the line of his family, his dad and brother are both police officers.

He will begin his training starting on Monday and he says he has been looking forward to it for as long as he can remember. "I went to the grocery store and somebody had come up to my father and said you saved my life. That impacted me. I didn't realize that he had done something so great. I grew up admiring him so I followed his footsteps."

Barber replaces a long-time officer who recently retired. His addition brings the compliment of officers to 173.
