MADISON, NJ – Madison’s borough council kicked off 2018 with the swearing in of a new police officer on Monday evening at its first regular meeting of the year.

Nelson Jimenez took the Oath of Office and became the Rose City’s 155th police officer since 1890. His smiling fiancee, Tiffany, pinned a shiny police badge on his lapel for the first time ever.

Jimenez will join the Madison Police Department’s patrol division after he completes a 12-week field training program.

Mayor Bob Conley said adding a new officer to the force is “a great way to start the new year.” 
Jimenez began his law enforcement career in the alternate route program of the Morris County Public Safety Training Academy.

Upon graduation he received the 200 Club Award, “presented to a single recruit whose outstanding efforts and attitude best exemplify the training goals of the Morris County Police Academy,” Conley said. “That certainly represents what we like to see here in Madison.” 

Jimenez’s uncle, Troy, has worked for the Paterson police force for at least 25 years. He currently serves as the department’s deputy chief of police. 

Born in the Dominican Republic, Jimenez came to the U.S. when he was just 1 year old. He and his family settled in Wharton, where Jimenez spent many of his younger years until he graduated in 2010 from Morris Hills High School. Jimenez also received a Bachelor’s degree in justice studies from Montclair State University in 2014.

Conley joked that even though Jimenez is a Mets fan, he was still proud to have him on the force.
