The Linden Police Department proudly welcomed two new Officers into their ranks earlier this afternoon, December 11, 2017. Officers and City Officials gathered in the courtroom with family and friends as Ariel Franjul and Carlos Ralda were sworn in as Police Officers during a ceremony at City Hall.
“New police officers have an ability and opportunity to help reshape the way people view law enforcement,” said Mayor Derek Armstead. “These young people, like many of our recruits, are from our community and that’s always an added plus when living and working in the community,” he added.
The hiring of the Officers approved by the City Council in July 2016.
