10 new officers welcomed into Colonie PD

COLONIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Colonie Police Department welcomed 10 new officers on Thursday.

The department called the graduates the largest group of hires in years. Some of the officers are ready to hit the streets while others will be headed to the police academy in January.

The officers are filling vacancies in the department to make sure the town has all the police they need to keep the town safe.

“We are seen as one of the safest towns around, and our people work very hard to protect us seven days a week, 24 hours a day,” Colonie Town Supervisor Paula Mahan said.

Mahan said Colonie is consistently rated one of the safest towns in the country.
