DAVENPORT, Iowa — The Davenport Police Department welcomed seven new officers to its force Wednesday.
Officers Cory Friemann, Marcus Kelley, Daniel Brody, James Allison, Michael Skocinski, Louis Mallillin, and Dakota Snyder were sworn in during the Jan. 6, 2021 Davenport City Council meeting.
Brody is from Knoxville, Illinois. He studied criminal justice in college and says he always knew from a young age that he wanted to become a police officer.
"To say it's a dream come true doesn't do it justice," Brody said Wednesday.
"I dreamed about this day as long as I can remember. As a little kid, I always knew that I wanted to come into a city and help serve and protect the people of it."
Brody's family was also there during the swearing in ceremony. His fiancé, Kylee Wehrly, gave him his official pin.
