Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department announces the hiring of Raymond Puluse and Jeffrey Dean as probationary police officers. The officers were sworn in at the July 15th meeting of the Mayor and Council, in front of family, friends and fellow officers who packed the council chambers.
Officer Puluse graduated from the Essex County Police Academy in Cedar Grove in February 2012. He was most recently employed by the Hudson County Sheriff’s Department. He left his position with that agency to join the Fairfield Police Department. Officer Puluse is currently working towards obtaining his criminal justice degree from William Paterson University.

Upon completing an extensive 8-12 week field training program, both officers will then be assigned to the patrol division. These are the first new hires of police officers in Fairfield since 2007. Chief Charles Voelker praised the Mayor and Council for their hiring of the new officers to replace the loss of officers that came as a result of recent retirements.
