  • Jennifer Long

The new officers will be entering the John H. Police Academy later this week, where they will begin their training. There the officers will be receiving the finest training with state of the art equipment.

Upon completion of the Academy, the new officers will be working with the Union Police Department to continue to keep the streets of Union safe.
