Two new probation officers will soon be on the job in Kanawha County.
Kanawha Circuit Chief Judge Duke Bloom swore in Tamara Craig and Michael Shaffer at a special ceremony Tuesday.
Shaffer said he has been looking forward to this opportunity. "I'm very excited this is a career opportunity I've been waiting for ever since I graduated college from Glenville State in 2008,” Shaffer said. “I'm ready to hit the ground running."
The two new officers will be placed on a probation period before taking their permanent positions.
