A dozen new police officers took their oath to join the Cambridge Police Department Monday morning after graduating the Lowell Police Academy last week.
The new officers were sworn in at Cambridge City Hall today by interim City Clerk Donna Lopez in front of family and friends, according to a press release from Cambridge Police.
Deputy City Manager Richard Rossi attended the ceremony, along with Police Commissioner Robert C. Hass and City Councilor E. Denise Simmons.
The new officers will now attend two weeks of in-service training to learn Cambridge Police Department policies, rules and regulations. They will also be assigned to a field training officer for eight weeks to work different shifts and train with different officers before being deployed on their own assignments in mid January.
The new officers are: Asif Ali, David Barkhouse, Joshua Buxbaum, Omar Corona, Joseph Grassi, Jonathan Martins, Charles McNeill, Jr., Kevin Medeiros, Christopher O’Callaghan, Ivelise Padgett, William Porter, William C. Simmons, Jr.
