ENON — Two part-time police officers have joined the ranks of the Enon Police Department.
Enon Mayor Tim Howard administered the oath of office to Officers Robert Durban and Jordan Guillozet during a brief ceremony before village council, a number of family members, and those who attended Tuesday, May 10 village council meeting.
“Tonight marks the finish of these two young men’s journey to become Enon police officers, and they will now begin their field training with the department,” Enon Police Chief Lewis Wilcox said.
According to Wilcox, Durham, a former patrol sergeant with the South Charleston Police Department, brings five years of village police experience to the department.
Durham, 27, is a longtime resident of Greene County and a 2007 graduate of Beavercreek High School. Following his high school graduation, Durham pursued a career in law enforcement and attended Eastern Kentucky University for three years where he was enrolled in the Criminal Justice Homeland Security degree program and was also a member of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. Durham continued his education in criminal justice and attended Wright State University from 2009 to 2012, majoring in Criminal Justice Organizational Leadership. He also attended the Ohio Peace Officers Training Academy (OPOTA) at the Greene County Career Center and received his OPOTA certification in 2011. Durham currently resides in Beavercreek with his wife, Emily, and their son.
Wilcox said Durham will assume his duties immediately and will be subject to the required six-months probationary period.
Guillozet, who resides in Troy with his wife, Courtney, is a 2012 graduate of Troy High School and a 2015 graduate of Edison State Community College Peace Officer Academy. Prior to receiving his OPOTA certification in December 2015, Guillozet worked as a jailer at the Fairborn Police Department. The 22-year-old police officer is also a proud member of the United States Air Force Reserves Security Forces.
Wilcox stated that Guillozet’s appointment will become effective May 15, and he will also be subject to the required six-months probationary period.
“These officers are ready to protect and serve the citizens of the village,” Wilcox said. “I look forward to their service to this department and the village of Enon.”
The two recruits now bring the department’s workforce to five part-time and two full-time police officers, including Wilcox.
