Three new Bremerton police officers were sworn in at city hall this week. They are Beau Ayers, Christopher Rory Faidley and Joseph Corey.

Corey grew up in Port Orchard and graduated from South Kitsap High School in 1998. Immediately following high school, he entered the Army and served five years on active duty as a military policeman in Korea, Fort Lewis and Iraq. Prior to joining BPD, he worked at Joint Base Lewis-McChord as a Department of Defense police officer and was training to fly. He has two children and enjoys spending time with them in his spare time.

Ayers was raised by his grandparents, Ray and Margie Ayers, after the death of his mother. He and his wife, Megan, have a 14-month daughter named Holly Lynn. He graduated from Ohio University with a bachelors of science in criminal justice. He was a police officer for the Nelsonville Police Department in Ohio for approximately three years.

Ayers served a year with the US Border Patrol on the southern border in Yuma, Ariz. He gained a lot of experience in that position and was exposed to many things he hadn't seen before.

"The work is great on the southern border, but the quality of life is not," he said.

Ayers transferred to Curley, Wash., for two years. He was selected for both the Spokane Sector Mountain Operation Team and their Honor Guard Team. His hobbies include hiking, fishing, hunting and riding ATVs. He also enjoys motorcycle riding and working on cars. He and his wife enjoy the outdoors and spending time with their new daughter.

Faidley was born and raised in Seattle and attended King's High School in north Seattle. He graduated from Whitman College in Walla Walla in 2009 with a bachelors degree in American politics and a minor in psychology. He enlisted in the Washington State National Guard in 2011 as an Intelligence Analyst and is still an active reserve with the National Guard.

Faidley spent the past few years working as a project engineer for an electrical contractor and providing executive security for Microsoft. He and his wife Colleen have a 1 year old black lab named Louie.
