Moorhead police welcomes three new officers.

Andy Werk, A.J. Schlee, and Taylor Huss were sworn in at a ceremony today.

Family and friends attended to join them for the honor.

With all of the recent police shootings and violence toward law enforcement, the new officers say they are aware of the risks.

Andy Werk says, "There's always that fear you know. You never know what's gonna happen on a call but knowing that I have those partners and that I always have back up is great and I wouldn't trust anyone else than I do my fellow partners in Moorhead."

With many area police units seemingly short-handed the addition of three new officers gives the area a much need boost of police protection.
