From the Barnstable Police Department:

The Barnstable Police Department celebrated five new officers at a noon-time ceremony.

Patrol Officer Liam Loiselle, Patrol Officer Braila Roy, Patrol Officer John Gardiner, Patrol Officer Luis Mattos, and Patrol Officer John York all took the police officers oath from Town Clerk Ann Quirk during a swearing-in ceremony at the Barnstable Police Station. The five new officers are recent graduates of the Plymouth Police Academy and completed a two-week in-house orientation program at the Barnstable Police Department. Next week they will begin a rigorous 3-4 month field training program where they will be paired up with veteran officers specially trained in conditioning new officers for patrol duty. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
