HOWELL – Chief Andrew Kudrick recently announced the promotion of two officers, a new hire, and the addition of three Class III officers in schools.

Each individual, accompanied by family, was sworn in by Sheriff Shaun Golden of the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Department.

“It is one of the greatest honors I have as chief to start, advance, and continue an officer’s career,” said Chief Kudrick during the meeting.

Officer promotions include Peter Hochhauser who was promoted from Patrolman to Sergeant and Michael Maccia, promoted from Patrolman to Detective.

Ryan Norton was sworn in, recently hired as a full-time officer. Two other men and one woman were also sworn in as patrol officers.

Golden swore in three Class III officers together. These Class III officers are all retired police officers who will patrol Howell schools to maintain student safety.

“As a longtime Howell resident, I am honored and humbled to be able to swear in the Howell officers,” said Golden. “By far, the township of Howell is the best police department in our county and probably one of the best in the state of New Jersey.”
