I promise to uphold my Oath of Office and the laws of Washington, the United States, the policies of the Port Angeles Police Department, and our mission at all times. I further promise to remember every day that I chose this career calling because I believed then - as I believe now - that I can truly make a positive difference in the lives of others.
