Cheyenne Police Department Swears in 2 New Officers
The Cheyenne Police Department welcomed two new officers to its ranks Tuesday morning.
Sean Lenihan and James McClaskey were sworn in during a ceremony at the Cheyenne Public Safety Center.
Lenihan brings six years of experience to the job, having previously worked for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in southern California.
“I grew up in a family full of people who worked in law enforcement and followed their footsteps,” he said.
McClaskey moved to Cheyenne from Kansas City, where he previously served in the Army.
“I wanted to become a police officer to help those in need on their worst days,” he said.
"My favorite thing about Cheyenne is the people," he added. "We value the small-town hospitality and would like to raise our family here.”
