The Pleasanton Police Department recently welcomed two new officers to its force, both transferring to Pleasanton from other California departments.
Taking part in a socially distanced swearing-in ceremony last month were Officer Del Vaughn Billups and Officer Luke Olson.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Billups had been a deputy-sheriff since 2012 with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. He is a graduate of the King/Drew Magnet High School of Medicine and Science.
Olson, a Sonoma County native, worked for the Brisbane Police Department for the past six years. He graduated from Santa Rosa Junior College with a dual associate's degree in criminal justice, and social and behavioral sciences.
