PUTNAM — Last week the Putnam Police Department hired two new police officer candidates.
Police Chief Christopher D. Ferace said Nicholas E. Ustin and Roy D. Hicks were sworn in as the 15th and 16th officers in the department, filling two existing vacancies. Both officers started the 371St Training Session of the POSTC Connecticut Police Academy Jan. 8.
The two new officers will train for approximately 24 weeks with a projected graduation date of mid-June 2021. Then each new officer will undergo a minimum of an additional 400 hours of Field Training towards acquiring their Police Officer Certification. After the successful completion of their Field Training program, they will be assigned to the department’s Patrol Division.

He comes from a law enforcement family as his father is a retired police officer from the White Plains (N.Y.) Police Department. Nicholas holds an associate’s degree in criminal justice from Columbia Greene College and is recently engaged to his fiancée Lisa.
