The Redlands Police Department welcomed a number of new employees, along with two employees who have returned to the department, during a ceremony Thursday, Nov. 15, at the Redlands Police Annex.

Three new police officers joined the ranks of the department recently and were formally welcomed during the ceremony.

Officer Thomas Williams was hired in April as a Reserve Police Officer. As a reserve officer, Williams volunteered more than 200 hours of patrol time while maintaining a fulltime job. In July, Williams was hired as a fulltime Police Officer and is now in the final phase of his six-month field training, which he is expected to complete early this month.

Williams holds an associates degree in Criminal Justice and hopes to begin working toward his bachelor’s degree in business management after completing his training.

In 2009, Officer Paul Davis graduated in the top 6 percent of his class after putting himself through the Riverside Sheriff’s Academy. On March 8, he was sworn in as a Reserve Officer for the Redlands Police Department, becoming a fulltime officer in July.

Born in Redlands, Officer Dave Frisch was a paid call firefighter for three years in the Brookings Fire Department in Brookings, Ore., where he received several awards, including “Rookie of the Year,” and “Firefighter of the Year.” In 1999, he returned to Southern California where he decided to fulfill his dream of becoming a police officer. He was hired by the San Bernardino Police Department and graduated at the top of his class from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Academy.

Shirley Ogden was hired as a fulltime Community Service Officer. Ogden worked as a Parking Control and Community Service Officer for the Redlands Police Department from 2008 to 2010 before her position was eliminated as a result of layoffs. She was rehired this year as a part-time liaison officer to the District Attorney’s Office and subpoena clerk. When the fulltime position for a Community Service Officer became available she applied for the position. Ogden has more than 20 years experience as a private investigator specializing in worker’s compensation fraud.

Matt Houston was welcomed as a fulltime Community Service Officer. Born and raised in Redlands, Houston completed coursework in Law Enforcement Occupations and Fire Science as a student at Redlands East Valley High School, where he graduated in 2009. Following high school, he participated in the Redlands Emergency Services Academy. In August 2010, Houston was hired as a cadet by the San Bernardino Police Department where he completed rotations in Records, Traffic and Fleet Maintenance. He was promoted to Community Service Officer in February 2011. He has completed post-secondary coursework in general education at Crafton Hills College.

Angie Lam, worked for the Redlands Police Department from 2004 until 2010, when budget cuts forced layoffs in the department. Since then she has worked for the Superior Courts of Riverside County and as a legal processing assistant at the Superior Courts of San Bernardino. Recently she was hired as a part-time customer service representative for the department. She will continue to balance her full-time job and her part-time position with RPD.

Roy Garcia, a Redlands East Valley High School graduate who earned his bachelor’s degree in technical design from Cal State San Bernardino, where he was involved in theater and film production, was hired as a part-time surveillance camera operator. Garcia is putting himself through the Sheriff’s Academy and considering a career in law enforcement.

Lisa Kuhnle is a part-time kennel attendant at the Redlands Animal Shelter. From 2006-2009, Kuhnle was the veterinarian technician for the shelter and also supervised the cattery. She currently is working as the animal rescue coordinator, setting up adoption shows and rescue transportation, and recently drove 25 small dogs to LAX after coordinating their adoption in Canada.

Two part-time research assistants were hired to assist the department’s criminologist. Niki Ables is working toward her master’s degree in communicative disorders at the University of Redlands. She also works as a graduate speech language pathologist and plans to graduate in 2014. Taylor Shuey joined the department as a Police Explorer in June 2007 and was Police Explorer of the Year in 2009. He is attending the University of Redlands, majoring in government and psychology. Shuey was hired as a criminologist intern before being hired to his current position. In November he was named the City of Redlands 2012 Part-time Employee of the Year.
