The Chatham Borough Council welcomed Kyle James Beasley as the newest member of the Police Department when they met on August 12.

With Beasley's hire, which the council approved unanimously, the police department takes another step in recovering from several personnel losses incurred over the last two years due mostly to retiring officers stepping down.

Chief Philip J. Crosson said Beasley has "a variety of training and experience" that the borough can make use of, including "planning and supervision of mandatory agency training as well as the Emergency Response Team" in Hunterdon County.

Crosson said Beasley has expressed "a strong interest in community policing, which is what we strive for here in Chatham Borough."

Beasley earned his bachelor's degree at the University of Scranton and worked as a corrections officer at the Hunterdon County Division of Corrections. Other experience includes time with the Hunterdon County Prosecutor's Office and the Warren County Sheriff's Department.

Clerk Susan Caljean administered the oath of office, and Lt. Brian Gibbons presented Beasley with his badge of office.
