Four police cadets who were kicked out of out a New Jersey police academy last month for drinking in the barracks were re-enrolled a week later, according to law enforcement officials.
Cadets Guy Cross of the Perth Amboy Police Department, William Omrod of Lower Township’s Police Department, Anthony Payne of the Wildwood Police Department and Kirk Rohrer of Sea Isle City’s Police Department started their second stint at the Cape May County Police Academy on Jan. 23 and are still enrolled at the Cape May Police Academy, Cape May County counsel Jeff Lindsay said in a statement.
The cadets were kicked on January 16 for sneaking alcohol into the mandatory-stay barracks, but were readmitted on January 23 after being dealt with internally by their respective departments.
“The Academy is not, nor should it be, involved in determining the appropriate corrective action that an employer takes toward a recruit who has been dismissed by the Academy,” Lindsay said in an emailed statement. “Throughout this incident, the Academy acted diligently and consistent with its rules, regulations and applicable Police Training Commission Guidelines.”
According to NJ.com, any other cadets -aside from the four previously mentioned- who were involved in the incident have since graduated and are sworn police officers.
