PROVINCETOWN - Acting Police Chief Jim Golden announced the addition of a new officer to his force this week. Officer Jennifer Nolette, a recent graduate of the Plymouth Police Academy, began work as a Provincetown police officer on Sunday.
Officer Nolette has worked with the department for the last three years as an emergency telecommunicator, according to the chief.
"With so many excellent candidates seeking to become police officers, we are very proud to add her to the Provincetown Police Department," said Chief Golden. "We have extremely high hopes for her."
Officer Nolette recently graduated with 56 fellow officers from the 20+ week/800+ hour basic training program in Plymouth. She will start with a field training officer followed by a year-long probationary period with the department. There are currently four patrol sergeants, two detectives and ten police officers on the force, according to the department's roster.
Officer Nolette lives in Provincetown.
