BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIA — Chief Mike Cantaloupe administered the Police Officer’s Oath to the newest member of the Cocoa Police Department.
James Salley, 41, was sworn in Monday morning in front of family members and agency personnel.
He is the fifth officer in the last week to be sworn in, bringing the total number of sworn officers to 67.
Salley is originally from Brooksville, Florida, and is a former U.S. Marine, having served three years with infantry security forces from 1996-1999.
He later served as a law enforcement officer for Prince Georges County, Maryland for 11 years and then spent three years with the Melbourne Police Department before coming to Cocoa.
He will spend the next several weeks in training. Because of his prior law enforcement experience he will be on the “fast track” and should be deployed to solo patrol duties within eight weeks.
