2 New Cops

[Mayor Fuhriman swears in Brandon Prince (left) and Eric Rose (right)]     
We had two recent additions to the police department filling vacancies from retirements.  They were selected from a very competitive process.

Brandon Prince:
  • Played hockey at Utah State
  • Member of National Guard
  • Native of Huntington Beach, CA
  • Wife is a teacher (part of what she teaches is survival training) in Rigby
  • Family predominately either works in education or law enforcement (brother-in-law works at the Pocatello Police Department)
  • Married for about 2-years
Eric Rose:
  • Attended BYU-I, Graduated in July with degree in sociology
  • Member of the National Guard
  • Grew up in Colorado and Utah, but has family that resides in Idaho Falls
  • He and his wife have been married just over a year
  • Awaiting the birth of a daughter (their first) in January
They are both outstanding men, but the thing that impressed me most was their integrity and willingness to stand alone for doing the right thing.  Some people are critical of the 20-something millennials, but if Brandon and Eric are in any way representative of their generation, we have reason for optimism.
