Police Officer Jonathan Saintiche was welcomed into the Peekskill family when he was sworn in by Mayor Frank Catalina at last Monday’s Common Council meeting.
The 26-year-old Orange County resident is a veteran of the United States Air Force and an active member of the Air National Guard as a staff sergeant. For the past year and a half he has been serving with the City of Newburgh.
Peekskill Chief of Police Eric Johansen said that Saintiche has been hard at work taking part in the Peekskill PD’s field training program. Officer Saintiche is also a certified emergency medical technician and volunteer firefighter in his hometown.
