“Over the past two years, Troy has dedicated over 500 hours of volunteer service to the township’s residents,” said Cranford Police Chief Ryan Greco. “Our residents have undoubtedly seen him supporting the Cranford Police Department in weather-related emergencies, community events, or simply as a crossing parishioner going to church on Sunday morning. Officer Kettler’s experience working with the community and volunteer work ethic in a time of crisis will be a valuable addition to the Cranford Police Department and the Township of Cranford over the course of his duties.”
