The five new officers, all West New York residents, graduated the police academy on Wednesday, December 13.
â€œWe are proud to welcome the new members of the West New York Police Department and look forward to working with them to continue moving our town forward,â€ Mayor Felix Roque, the commissioner of the Department of Public Safety, said in a statement.
â€œAs the Holiday Season comes around, putting more officers on the street benefits the
officers already out there and the citizens we serve.â€
The new graduating members of the West New York Police Department are: Officers Benitez, Molina-UreÃ±a, Jaber, Garcia, and Hernandez.
â€œI want to thank Mayor Roque and our most important partners, the residents of West New York, for helping us keep WNY safe,” added Police Director Robert Antolos.
