SHOUT OUTS: Two Bergen County police chiefs got to present their offspring with certificates as 77 new officers were graduated from the Bergen County Police Academy’s basic training class yesterday.
“What a proud moment it was for my family and me,” Saddle Brook Police Chief Robert Kugler said after presenting the certificate to his daughter, Shayna, a new Bergen County Sheriff’s officer, during the graduation ceremony at Paramus Catholic High School.
Saddle River Police Chief Timothy McWilliams did the honors for his son, Christopher, who is joining the Ramsey Police Department.
Joining new members of the Bergen County Police Department, Bergen County Sheriff’s Office and police departments within the county were graduates from those in Paterson, New York City, Hoboken, West New York, Riverdale and Essex County.
The newly appointed officers, who began Class 112 on Jan. 27, studied professional development, community relations, criminal law, emergency medical care and unarmed defense, among other topics.
They now enter field training with their respective departments.
