Newark Police Academy Graduates 66 Recruits

In a chamber packed with family members and friends, the 66 members of the 113th Police Recruit Class took their oaths of office as Newark Police Officers, received awards for their Academy achievements, and exhortations from Mayor Booker, Police Director Garry F. McCarthy, and Police Chief Anthony S. Campos.

Police Director McCarthy gave the new officers three “orders of the day” in his remarks, urging them to “stay safe, stay vigilant, and stay excited,” ensuring that they returned home to their loved ones after their tours of duty, and avoided becoming jaded by their jobs. “You will see the best and worst of mankind in your 25 years on the job,” Director McCarthy said. “You will see unspeakable horror and the greatest heroics. And your actions will change the course of history. Treat people with dignity and respect, and make a difference.”
