The emotionally disturbed man who violently attacked and nearly drowned an elderly Parks Department security worker yesterday is on the list to become a environmental police officer and a school Safety officer, NYC Park Advocates has learned.
Jermyne Beaton, 27, attacked a 64-year-old woman, dragging her into the water and forced her head underneath.
According to Department of Citywide Administrative Service records, Jermyne Beaton is a candidate for DEP Environmental Police Officer and a School Safety Agent.
Beaton has been on the DCAS police officer list since Nov. 21, 2014 and school safety officer since July 31, 2013.
This morning he was transferred to a Queens hospital for a psychological evaluation because he was, "acting up," in his holding cell according to city sources.
Beaton, who lives on Beach Chanel Drive, was charged yesterday with Felony Assault and Harassment.
