“I was recently sworn in as a Reserve Police Officer of the Rockport, Indiana Police Department by city Mayor Gay Ann Harney. I’m still a resident of Las Vegas, NV, but It’s an honor to be able to come back to this area when I can and serve the community as a reserve police officer and help out my brothers.”
According to 14News The Rockport Police Department just swore in a new officer: Jeremy Spencer, former drummer of Five Finger Death Punch.
Spencer was voted the “Best Drummer of 2015” by Loudwire, but Sunday he put down the drum sticks and traded them in for a police badge.
At 19-years-old, Jeremy Spencer left his hometown of Boonville, Indiana.
“I’m kind of relearning where things are in my house now. Like where the cups are, you know, because I was gone. It’s been really cool to just kind of do a normal situation for a while,” said Spencer.
In 2005, Jeremy became the drummer of Five Finger Death Punch, a metal band that’s known all over the U.S.
“It was amazing and it brings back memories watching it now. I kind of remember some of these shows and it’s very cool,” said Spencer.
Just at the end of 2018, Jeremy decided to walk away from the band and Sunday, he was sworn into a different one.
“I’m basically taking what I did in the band and just applying it to this, and trying to do the best I can,” said Spencer.
The Rockport Police Department has been training Jeremy to become one of their own, a group he’s always looked up to.
“You just see the impact they have on everyone’s life. It’s so important,” said Jeremy.
A job different from the one he’s had for the past 14-years, but one he finds just as rewarding.
“Life’s about experience, so to me this was great and I think this is going to be great now,” said Jeremy…
We wish Jeremy the best at his future endeavors.
