GEORGETOWN 一 Chief Donald C. Cudmore is pleased to announce that Officer Tyler Skane has graduated from the Northern Essex Community College (NECC) Police Academy.
Officer Skane has served as a reserve police officer and as a reserve communications dispatcher within the Department since 2017.
Officer Skane graduated from the NECC Police Academy on June 24.
Academy recruits undergo a 24-week intensive program that covers constitutional law, domestic violence, elder abuse communication, problem-solving skills, response to citizens on the autism spectrum, and Active Bystander for Law Enforcement (ABLE) training, which prepares officers to intervene when they see other officers engaging in misconduct.
Upon returning to the Georgetown Police Department, Officer Skane will serve as a full-time officer.
“Officer Skane is a seasoned officer that will fit in perfectly with our complement of officers. He is time-tested and comes from a family of law enforcement officers,” Chief Cudmore said. “I am very excited to have him back after being gone for six months of training.”
