On Friday, August 16, 2013, three City of Newburgh Police Officers graduated from the Orange County Police Academy at ceremonies held at Anthony’s Pier 9. The first photo shows Interim City Manager James Slaughter, Mayor Judy Kennedy, Police Officer Michael Woodard, Police Officer Carlos Canario, Police Chief Michael Ferrara, Police Officer Timothy Gliedman, Lt. Pete Leach, Lt. Dan Cameron.
The second photo shows a proud moment for Police Officer Tim Gliedman (pictured with Chief Michael Ferrara and his father, Jeff Gliedman). Mr. Gliedman presented his son with a “badge box” commemorating three generations of family members in the City of Newburgh Police Department, including the new graduate. Tim’s Great-Grandfather, Howard P. Rogers, was a Patrolman for the Newburgh Police Department (NPD) for his entire career, 1920-1946, and his Grandfather, Philip H. Gliedman, retired from NPD as Deputy Chief in 1967. He was on the force from 1942 to 1967.
