Atlantic City added to its seasonal ranks Monday with the graduation of 13 Special Law Enforcement Officer Class IIs.

The graduates of the Cape May County Police Academy bring to 30 the total number of so-called Class IIs working in the city.

Class IIs have similar powers to full-time officers, but are paid hourly and do not get benefits. They also are limited to 48 hours per week during the summer season, and only 20 hours weekly if kept on the rest of the year.

Atlantic City first brought on these officers last year in an effort to increase the number of officers, and to free up the veterans to patrol the more troubled neighborhoods. The Class IIs are mainly assigned to the Boardwalk along with details at City Hall and the Atlantic County Civil Courthouse.

The 13 join 13 others who graduated last week from the Atlantic County academy, along with four officers who were already on the force. Several others were lost to Camden, when they had recent hires.

The new Class II officers are: Emmanuel Antoine, Mike Batista, Shakiyrah Bishop, Danielle Colon, Keith Epstein, Michael Gunsser, Christian Ivanov, Valmir Loga, John Marciante, Nicholas Marzocca, Dustin Paulsson, Michael Scanlon and Lance Smith.
