The hiring of these new officers is part of the town’s commitment to provide excellent emergency services and maintain a safe community for the residents of West New York, the mayor said.
“Keeping our citizens safe is our number one priority,” said Mayor Roque. “By working together with the West New York Police Department, we have been able to grow our force and become one of the best police departments in the state.”
Upon these recruits completing a rigorous 23 weeks of training at the Passaic County Police Academy, the West New York Police Department will reach 119 personnel.
The new recruits, all West New York residents, are Bridget Albuja, Edwin Cabrera, Andrew Ramos, Adrian Solares, and Xiomara Salinas.
