The above photo depicts Special Officer Timothy Swain (right) as he graduates as a Class 2 Police Officer from the Ocean County Police Academy, Special Law Enforcement Officer Class #46. The graduation was held earlier today in Jackson, NJ.
On September 14, 2017, Timothy Swain was hired by the Lacey Township Police Department as a Class I Special Law Enforcement Officer. Prior, he graduated from the Academy of Law and Public Safety (Lacey Township School District) and also served as a Police Explorer/Police Cadet with the Ocean County Chiefs of Police Law Enforcement Explorer/Cadet Post #1. Special Officer Swain also obtained his Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America. In August 2017, he joined the United States Air Force where he currently holds the rank of E-4.
In September 2019, Special Officer Swain began the second phase of his Law Enforcement Officer career, beginning the Ocean County Police Academy, Special Law Enforcement Officer Class #46. I am proud to say after 10 long months of training, Special Officer Swain graduated today as a Class 2 Police Officer for the Lacey Township Police Department. He will be assigned to one of our Field Training Police Officers (FTOs) where he will spend the next several weeks in our department field training program. Once Special Officer Swain completes our field training program he will be assigned to various law enforcement duties throughout Lacey Township. I would like to acknowledge both his family, and Ocean County Sheriff’s Detective Christine Farrell, who have been very instrumental in Special Officer Swain’s law enforcement career.
Congratulations Special Officer Swain, job well done!!
