ROCKPORT — Former Five Finger Death Punch drummer Jeremy Spencer was sworn in as a reserve officer for the Rockport Police Department on Sunday.

“I was recently sworn in as a Reserve Police Officer of the Rockport, Indiana Police Department by city Mayor Gay Ann Harney,” the Boonville, Indiana native said in an Instagram post. “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."

Spencer was a drummer with Five Finger Death Punch for 13 years. He retired in 2018 after having back surgery.

Although he isn't a member of the band anymore, his former Five Finger Death Punch teammates are thrilled with his next adventure.

"It's pretty much public knowledge by now that we have been supporting 1st Responders, Vets and active memberse of the military since day one," the group posted on their Facebook page. "It brings us great joy and makes us very proud to see that our brother and former drummer Jeremy Spencer keeps walking the walk!
