The newest member of the City of Rye Police Department has completed his training and has reported for duty.
Police Officer Jonathan Klein graduated Friday from the Westchester County Police Academy’s Basic Police Recruit School, which consists of 20 weeks of training in law, police operational procedures, social science, self-defense, firearms, first aid, and physical fitness. He will now begin a period of field training that will last several months.
Klein, 22, a lifelong Harrison resident, is a graduate of Harrison High School and was formerly employed at the Doral Arrowwood Golf Course. He follows a family legacy in law enforcement; his grandfather, Albert Klein, retired in 1995 as Chief of Police of the Town of Harrison.
He has been assigned to this Rye’s field training program, a structured curriculum designed to familiarize newly hired officers with the community and departmental procedures under the guidance of experienced officers.
