Hi Missy - Any public official who is authorized by law to give oaths my swear in a police officer. A selectboard member cannot unless he or she is a notary or a justice of the peace.  Note that police officers are ex-officio notaries so the police chief could swear in the new officers.  Deb

   Actually, I was wondering if it is OK for someone else besides me to do it as they want to do it at the Selectboard meeting, so we were wondering if a selectboard member could do it.

Thanks!  It is 802-482-5404.  Do you know who can administer the oath?  Can a selectboard or JP do it?  Missy

Yes, he must take an oath--it is a special one for police officers.  If you give me your FAX number, I'll fax it to you.
