CLARK, NJ – Clark’s newest police officer is Paul Sosnowski.  He took the oath of office at the outset of the township council meeting Monday night.

“He distinguished himself in every challenge that was put forth to him in his interview and his background,” Chief of Police Pedro Matos said. “He did very well.”

Sosnowski is a graduate of Spotswood High School.  After graduation, he joined the United States Navy, where he served as an aviation technician from 2003 until 2007. He served in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, Matos said.
