Four new officers and one probationary officer were sworn in to the police department on Tuesday in the council chambers of the municipal building.

The new officers are:

Officers Urena and Rojas are former Paterson Police Officers, and probationary police officer Davis is a former Rutgers Newark campus police officer. 

Urena, McGrath, Rojas and Heiser have served on the MPD for the past year as probationary officers while they completed their training. Davis will be sworn in next year when he completes his own probationary training. 

The Montclair Police Department now has a force of 103 officers.
