TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - More than 170 new corrections officers have been sworn-in in New Jersey.

The 172 graduates from 18 of the state’s 21 counties became officers during a ceremony in Trenton on Thursday.

Seven of the new officers who patrol the state’s prisons have military experience, while 60 have college degrees.

About 3,000 trainees have graduated from the department’s 14-week academy since Republican Gov. Chris Christie took office in 2010.
