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

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.”
