Mayor Carolyn Kirk and Police Chief Leonard Campanello are pleased to announce the graduation of five new police officers from the West Boylston Police Academy after 22 weeks of training
Officers David D’Angelo, Jared Foote, Keith Gaudenzi, Robert Morrissey, and Michael Cimoszki will now enter the Field Training portion of their employment, followed by a probationary period of one year.
A total of eight new police officers are expected to join Gloucester over the next few months, as three additional officers are slated to attend the Police Academy hosted by the MBTA Transit Police in February 2015.
“I am extremely proud of these five officers. We have put them through a very rigorous process in prepping for the academy and then 22 weeks of official training. They are the best of the best in my opinion and will serve Gloucester well after their Field Officer Training,” Chief Campanello said. “I am also looking forward to adding three officers in February. It’s invigorating to have such high-quality candidates to serve the City of Gloucester.”
The eight new officers replace those who have retired or have been promoted out of the patrol division.
