They made it through! Four new West New Police Officers moved up the ranks and were honored with a promotion ceremony in Town Hall on Friday afternoon.
“They’re out there constantly trying to make our town safer,” says Dr. Felix Roque, the town’s mayor. “What a better way to say thank you than to give them the title, the promotion.”
And thank you to the amazing family members in attendance, who sacrifice on a daily basis.
These four guys put in major time, energy and work — and their fellow officers know just what it’s like since they’ve all gone through this at one time.
They’re getting a hands-on experience from the ground up.
According to Roque, West New York has one of the lowest crime rates in the nation and their police force has made it possible.
Law enforcement is currently facing myriad challenges and police leadership can navigate change, especially in such trying times.
