Montclair Swears In Two New Police Officers

Two Montclair probationary police officers were sworn in during a ceremony held Friday, July 26 in Municipal Council Chambers. Deputy Municipal Clerk Juliet Lee administered the Oath of Office to officers Nicole Muccio and Ivan Oqueli.

Nicole Muccio graduated from the Cape May County Police Academy in January of this year. She received an associate degree in arts and criminal justice from Passaic County Community College, Wanaque, NJ.

Ivan Oqueli graduated from the Public Safety Training Academy in Morristown, NJ in May of this year. He received his Bachelor of Science in criminal justice from the University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL.

The probationary officers will undergo a field training program in which they will be paired with specially-trained, experienced patrol officers or FTOs. The training curriculum covers a wide number of topics ranging from departmental operations, at-scene criminal investigations, and handling domestic violence incidents, to traffic enforcement and issues of homeland security.


  1. Seems like MPD just keeps expanding but hard to know b/c chief Conforti discontinued annual reports. The reports under Chief Sebagh (?) had useful local crime stats by ward as well as personnel data-like how many officers. Useful stuff on the kinds of kinds of crimes reported Montclair each year, where, and info on stops and arrests. Many local police departments produce annual reports, but not MPD since Conforti. He, or someone, even pulled old reports down, presumably so his failure to produce one would be less conspicuous. Thanks Chief! Maybe we can get the missing crime stats during “coffee with a cop” that he’s so proud of.

  2. Good points, lacamina. Where is the public transparancy, accountability? If you don’t ask, you won’t receive. Did someone just say that parking meter rates are going up?
