Two recent graduates of the Monmouth County Police Academy will be joining the Shrewsbury Police Department.
Ryan M. Cullinane and Ralph L. Latham III were among 33 officers to graduate the 83rd basic course at the academy.
“Just like the men and women of our various law enforcement divisions who stepped up over the past six weeks in the wake of superstorm Sandy, I have no doubt that you will step up, too. Working around the clock, police officers provided assistance to residents in unprecedented ways. Police officers provided a first level of support to residents in need. You are now part of this important public service corps," Freeholder Director John P. Curley said.
The graduating class completed more than 800 hours of training this year.
Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun E. Golden praised the new officers for pursuing a career in public service.
“Through dedication and hard work you all have successfully completed training and attained certification as law enforcement officers. I commend you for a job well done and wish you much success as you embark on a career in law enforcement.”
