Manchester PD Welcomes In New Patrolman Conner Ferino

The Manchester Township Police Department is pleased to welcome Patrolman Conner Ferino, who was sworn in by Mayor Robert Arace on March 4, 2024, in front of family, friends, police and township personnel.

“When a new Patrolman joins the Manchester Township Police Department, our residents can rest assured that top-tier candidates like Ptl. Ferino are selected to represent our agency,” said Chief Robert Dolan. “Only those individuals who are truly dedicated to excelling in the service of their community can successfully navigate our department’s intensive hiring process.”

Ptl. Ferino grew up in Manchester Township and is in the process of completing his Criminal Justice degree at Rutgers University. He began his law enforcement career in 2022 with the Point Pleasant Beach Police Department as a Special Law Enforcement Officer Class I. A recent graduate of the Ocean County Police Academy, Ptl. Ferino achieved the High Overall award in recognition of his outstanding performance in firearms proficiency, physical fitness, and academics.

Chief Dolan explained that the intensive Manchester Township Police Department hiring process for the position of Patrolman began in July of 2023, when approximately 80 individuals submitted their applications for employment. For the first phase, applicants participated in the Physical Agility Examination held at the Manchester Township High School. This test consisted of pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, and a one mile run. Those who passed advanced to the boxing component. Applicants who completed all portions of the physical exam then participated in the Written Examination. From there, the top scorers went before the Oral Board for extensive interviews. The select candidates considered for employment underwent a thorough background investigation and submitted to medical, psychological, and drug screenings.

Ptl. Ferino will begin the Manchester Police Department’s intensive twelve-week Field Training and Evaluation Program, during which time he will be instructed and mentored by several highly trained officers.

“I’m confident that Ptl. Ferino will serve the residents of our community with honor and integrity,” said Chief Dolan. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mayor Robert Arace, members of the Township Council, and Township Administration for facilitating this new hire. Their continued support of our police department and mission to serve our residents to a high level is appreciated.”
