SOMERVILLE, NJ – Kyle Jordan, a football standout at Immaculata High School before graduating in 2010, was sworn in at Monday night’s borough council meeting as the borough’s newest police officer.

Several of his fellow officers attended the swearing-in ceremony.

Jordan, who grew up in Bernardsville, comes with experience, having briefly served on the Bernardsville police force this year.  Jordan received his basic police training at the Camden County Police Academy, graduating in December 2015.

While attending Immaculata, Jordan was selected as Second-team All Somerset County and first team All-Raritan Division. He played both sides of the ball as a fullback and linebacker.

After graduating Immaculata, he attended Albany State in New York and played college football for four years, graduating in 2014. He majored in sociology, with a minor in criminal justice.

Members of the borough council congratulated Jordan after the ceremony.

“We value what you do on an everyday basis,” said Mayor Brian Gallagher.

Borough Police Chief Dennis Manning said the addition of Jordan to the patrol division keeps the department at its optimum number of 32 police officers.

“No doubt, you are going to fit in,” he told Jordan, before telling council members, “We got lucky; we got the right one.”
