The City of Glens Falls Police Department held a swearing in ceremony this morning at City Hall. Joining the Department this morning, all with the title of Patrol Officer, are Zack Swartz from Hudson Falls, Michaela Ortale from Gansevoort, Caleb Hughey from North Creek, and Alexander Daab from Bolton Landing (photos are attached).
The four (4) new officers won’t be patrolling the streets of Glens Falls just yet as they will begin their academy training on Monday, February 20. Upon the completion of the six (6) month training this August, they will begin a twelve (12) week Field Training Program with the current city officers.
"We are very excited to have these new officers join our department” says Detective Seth French. “We look forward to their graduation from the academy and being part of the ‘day to day’ here in the City of Glens Falls.”
Even with the new police officers being sworn in this morning, the City of Glens Falls PD is currently looking for lateral transfers and new officers for employment to fill current openings within the department. Please call (518) 761-3840 and ask for Chief Smith or Detective French.
