Foligno noted that Yates the department’s second female hire and second African-American.

“In an attempt to diversify our police force we have hired four minority officers in the past two years — two are Hispanic and two African-American,” the chief told CLIFFVIEW PILOT . “It important: We must reflect and represent the diverse community that we serve.”

Although the hiring brings the department to a total of 40 officers, it’s still a half-dozen shy of the 2008 total, he noted.
