After two months without a job, former Bellevue Marshal Tim Green is now a captain with the Jerome Police Department.
Green was sworn in Wednesday before the Jerome City Council and reported for duty Thursday morning.
"I feel great," Green said. "I've been home for two months and it's not like a vacation. I've been dying to get back to work."
Green served as Bellevue marshal from August 2005 until December 2007. That's when the city implemented a new contract for law enforcement with the Blaine County Sheriff's Office and Green found himself without a job.
He won't have as far to drive to work. He lives just south of Jerome.
Green said his wife kept him busy during his two months of unemployment.
"She said, 'I'm bringing home the bacon and you're doin' the housework.'"
Green said he had to pass drug and psychological tests before he was hired.
"Those were tests I didn't study for," he said.
