CARTERET—At a Council Meeting held on July 23, Mayor Daniel Reiman administered the oath of office to three new recruits to Carteret’s Police Department.
The new officers were hired on Dec. 29, 2008, after previously being appointed by the mayor and council. They are all recent police academy graduates from the Somerset County Police Academy.
Carteret’s most recent additions to its police department are:
• Vincent Bellino, who attended Carteret schools, NJIT, and Kean University. P.O. Bellino has previously served as a Volunteer Fireman, Volunteer First Aid member, and has worked for Carteret Board of Education since 2002.
• Keith Cassens is a graduate of New Hyde Park Memorial High School, and attended Nassau Community College. He previously served as a State Corrections Officer since 2007.
• Matthew Gomm attended Carteret schools, as well as Fairleigh Dickenson University.
Carteret operates under the N.J. Department of Personnel Merit System Board (formerly Civil Service), and all emergency service personnel are hired off a state certified list of eligible appointees.
Strengthening Carteret’s police force, along with the improvement of its services, training, and equipment, have been major considerations during Reiman’s administration.
“Since 2003 we have made considerable improvements to the quality and range of services offered by the Carteret Police Department,” Reiman commented. “Our new recruits are always carefully selected, and we are pleased to welcome them to one of the most dedicated public service teams in the state of New Jersey.”
