Roselle Park resident Joshua E. Valente was appointed as a probationary Roselle Park Police Department (RPPD) police officer at last night’s municipal meeting. Resolution 356-18 was approved unanimously by council.
Roselle Park Police Department (RPPD) Captain Daniel McCaffery, standing in for Police Chief Paul Morrison, formally introduced Joshua to the residents of the borough, “Joshua Valente is also a Roselle Park resident. He went through our school system [and] graduated Roselle Park High School. He’ll be graduated from Rutgers University within his next semester. We first came in contact with Joshua when he was assigned to us through his internship in college. He did his internship outstandingly. We were sad to see him go. However, he came back and volunteered for another two years just to become part of our family and to be a part of what we’re doing in law enforcement. He’s been behind the scenes; he’s been in front of the scenes. You may have seen him in our Youth Academy; you may have seen him in National Night Out. He is an asset to our department. He’s going to do a great job for us. Congratulations.”
Joshua Valente will be a probationary patrolman for a year after which time he will become a full patrolman. He will have an annual salary of $46,826.18 and will begin serving the resident of the borough on Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019.
