It's Official!

In less than 10 minutes on Monday the IFPD officially commissioned Lt. Joe Cawley to the rank of captain, Sgt. Bill Squires to the rank of lieutenant and Senior Patrol Officer Scott Killian to the rank of sergeant.

The ceremony was brief but in no way reflected how proud the IFPD is to bestow these great honors on these three fantastic officers.

They are all a great reflection of the caliber of officers at the IFPD!

Cawley started with the IFPD in September 1993. Prior to his service with the police department he worked as a welfare fraud investigator for the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.
As a member of the IFPD, Cawley has served in patrol, detectives, training and as the public information officer. He also spent some time at the Idaho Falls Airport assisting with the development of TSA policies. He has been recognized many times, including Officer of the Year in 2005.
Squires was hired by the department in September 1995. He has served in many capacities as an officer, including working in the narcotics and intelligence division.
Squires is a POST certified instructor and a firearms and tactics instructor. He is currently the SWAT Tactical Team Leader. He has been recognized many times for his leadership and teamwork, including being named Supervisor of the Year.
Killian joined the IFPD in April 1994. He has served in the patrol division, with special assignments in the Neighborhood Police Officer Program and bike patrol. He also is a police training officer since 1998 and an Emergency Vehicle Operation Course instructor.
Killian was honored in 2010 with the Idaho Falls Police Medal for his efforts in helping defuse a dangerous situation involving an armed man.
