PHOTO: Meet Lakewood’s Newest Police Officers

The Lakewood Police Department today held an in-house training for several new police officers.

The officers – some of which are transfers from other departments, some which have just hit the road, and some heading now to the police academy – met with chaplains, liaisons, along with various volunteer organization heads to learn about the different cultures in Lakewood, and to gain a first-hand understanding of religious customs and more.

Directed by Chief Greg Meyer and the leadership of Captain LeRoy Marshall and Training Sergeant Lenny Nieves Jr., the officers receive extensive training to ensure they’re fully equipped with the tools they need to hit the roads of one of the most diverse towns in the State and Country.

The new officers are:
