Gloucester Police Department Sends Five New Officers to the Police Academy
GLOUCESTER — After a process that included the Civil Service exam, a rigorous background investigation, physical exam, psychological exam, the Physical Abilities Test, 80 hours of training in Emergency Dispatch, and months of on the job training as Reserve Officers, Gloucester Police Chief Leonard Campanello is proud to announce that..
David D’Angelo, Robert Morrissey, Jared Foote, Michael Cimoszko, and Keith Gaudenzi
…have been selected to attend the West Bolyston Police Academy starting on July 20, 2014 and continuing for the next six months.
During this phase of their careers, they will be considered Student Officers. If they successfully complete the Academy, they will be assigned to a Field Training Program for 8 weeks, followed by a one year probationary period. At the end of that period, they will be permanent, full-time Gloucester Police Officers.
“I am very excited to have five new student officers entering the Academy. The process for them to get to this point was difficult. and they have shown that they are up to the challenge thus far,” Chief Campanello said. “I have very high expectations for these five. We only want the best candidates in the Gloucester Police Department, and the quality of these five candidates shows that we simply do not settle for second best. I anticipate that they will all excel at the Academy.”
