Northampton swore in six new police officers Monday night.
Officers Lauren Bolduc, Mitchell Cichy III, John Lewis, Taylor Granger, Jordan Ross, and Kevin Cook all took the oath to serve and protect.
During the ceremony, several other officers and community members were recognized for their achievements in 2018.
“Our officers do such a great job and a lot of times their daily routine goes unnoticed by the general public. So, we like to have this ceremony to kind of accentuate what they’re doing each day,” Northampton Police Captain John Cartledge told 22News.
And two Northampton janitors were also honored Monday night. John Zadworny and Roger Bishop were recognized for discovering holes that another janitor had drilled into the ceiling, to spy on girls in a high school bathroom.
Zadworny and Bishop alerted police, eventually leading to Michael Kremensky’s arrest.
Chief Jody Kasper said, “It was a scary time. We were very lucky that we had 2 members of central services that explored the matter further; kind of looked in like ‘hey, we’re concerned about this,’ And were able to give us a good start to this case and to figure out what was going on.”
Michael Kremensky was sentenced to six months in jail after pleading guilty to four counts of photographing an unsuspecting person in the nude last August.
