Officials in Linden announced the swearing in of the city's first Haitian officer.

According to Derek Armstead Mayor of Linden, Renald Dumé - the city’s newest police officer -made history after becoming the first Haitian native sworn in to serve on the Linden Police Department.

Officer Dumé came to the United States at the age of 9 with his family.

Dumé’s fascination of one day becoming a law enforcement so that he could help others, became a reality.

“Congratulations on achieving your dream and I know you will be a great addition to our wonderful police department,” said Derek Armstead Mayor of Linden.
