Cambridge Police swore in four new police officers Friday in a ceremony at the Robert W. Healy Public Safety Facility.
Officers Ryan T. Callinan, Edmund A. Costa, Daniel S. McGinty and Paul M. Burke Jr., took their oath at the ceremony after successfully completing their training at the Lowell Police Academy and graduating on Thursday, Nov. 17.
The new officers will now attend two weeks of in-service training to learn the Cambridge way of policing, be instructed in department policies, and learn the Cambridge Police Department’s rules and regulations.
After that, the new officers will be assigned to a field training officer for an additional eight weeks where they will work different shifts and train with different officers to get hands-on experience on the street in Cambridge. Once they have completed their training, the officers will receive their assignments and be deployed sometime in mid-January, according to Cambridge Police.
