“This was a unique ceremony,” Sheriff Frank Schillari said in a statement.

“However, these officers exemplify the high values that are associated with our office. I look forward to seeing these officers doing their part to make Hudson County safer for everyone.”

The ceremony took place in Hudson County Assignment Judge Peter Bariso’s courtroom.

The new officers are: Nashaat Awadallah, Christopher Bowen, Keith Garces, Carlos Gonzales, Jason Hansen, Andrew Napolitano, Nicholas Protopapadakis, Ramon Regalado, Joshua Ruiz, Luis Castillo, William Krajnik and Daniel Perez.

Schillari’s office has been proactive since the coronavirus has become a major concern in Hudson County, taking a “zero-tolerance policy” on price gouging and then postponing foreclosure sales and eviction notices.
