LARAMIE – Five new officers were sworn in to the Laramie Police Department on Tuesday. 

Though none of these officers are originally from Laramie, each is excited to serve the community and all have developed a love for the town. 

Officer Evan Kamerer hails from Spokane, WA. Following his heart via a girl to Laramie, Kamerer is adjusting to the altitude while establishing a new career in law enforcement. 

Having grown up in locales spanning across the country and the world, Officer Matthew Zuk came to Laramie with his wife who is attending UW. Not originally planning to go into policing, Zuk was impressed enough by the LPD and how they conducted themselves to change focus and join the ranks. 

Officer Taylor Bradshaw is a Marine Corps veteran who grew up just over the state line in Fort Collins, CO. Bradshaw and his wife have much love for Laramie, and are excited to continue to plant roots as part of the community. 

Officer Joshua Mielke, from Loveland, CO, has also been persuaded to establish roots on the Northern side of the state line. With time spent visiting family in town, Mielke grew to love the community and small town feel of Laramie. 

Officer Christopher Groh is a Wyoming local from Thermopolis. Starting as a dispatcher for the LPD, Groh is excited to begin working on the in-person side of the calls. 

The next stop for the recruits is the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy in Douglas for training, and they will then return to Laramie to train on the job with experienced LPD officers.
