BOZEMAN -

On Tuesday, the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office swore in new officers who will now work in the Three Forks Department.

Last month, the Three Forks Police Department announced it will transfer all of its duties to the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office.

This "take-over" will bring more resources including more access to the Search and Rescue team and Detective Division to the Three Forks community.

Don Petterson who previously served as Deputy and Detective for the Sheriff's office -- will be the new Sergeant for the Three Forks division.

"I enjoy challenges and new things. It will be a change for the Sheriff's Office and for myself," said Sergeant Don Petterson, Gallatin County Sheriff's Office.

Two officers from the Three Forks Police Department, Colter Metcalf and Sean Gifford will continue working in Three Forks under the Sheriff's Office.
