MEDINA – Medina Police Chief Chad Kenward shakes hands with Jacob Reeves, one of six officers to be sworn in during this evening’s Medina Village Board meeting. Sgt. Todd Draper also congratulates the officers who have all been on the force for less than a year. Corey Collins is at right.
The officers stand together while taking the oath of office. They include, from left: Christian Navas, Michael Forgione, Brian Marsceill, Corey Ambrose, Jacob Reeves and Cory Collins.
Two of the officers – Forgione and Navas – joined the Medina PD after recently completing the police academy. Ambrose also joined Medina after finishing the academy about a year ago. Reeves is a transfer from the Le Roy PD, while Marsceill joined Medina after working at the Attica PD. Collins was at Holley before coming to Medina.
The new officers bring the department to 12 officers, which is the most in about a decade.
The officers, in reading the oath, said they will “faithfully, honesty and impartially discharge the duties of police of the Medina Police Department.” They vowed to promote and protect the best interest of the Village of Medina “through fiscal responsibility, honesty, integrity and loyalty.”
