    The city of South Bend got four new police officers. They were sworn in today (Wednesday) at the department.

    Two of the officers were former South Bend police cadets.

    They began their journey two years ago when they joined the program.

    And if the day wasn't special enough, one of the newly inducted officers got down on one knee and proposed!

    "For one, I knew she wouldn't expect it," said Jeffery Diggins, officer who proposed. "Two, just to get the light off of me and put it on her. She is my light, so I want to make sure she's at the center of everything I'm doing."

    His new fiance says she was kind of suspecting something.

    She was tipped off because he had asked her to get her nails done.
