EAST HANOVER, NJ- Four members of the East Hanover Police Department were sworn in to their new ranks at the town council meeting this past Monday.

The meeting room was standing room only by the time the swearing in began and extended into the lobby as friends, family and community came out in droves to support their boys in blue. The night was a big one for the East Hanover Police Department as Sergeant John Ambrose, Sergeant Kevin Croker, Patrolman Francis Franco and Patrolman Jesse Novalis were all promoted to new positions.

“Tonight is a special night for us,” began Mayor Joe Pannullo. “We are getting the chance to promote four of our wonderful police officers who have dedicated themselves to protect the community and everybody in this room.”

Sergeant Ambrose now holds the rank of captain in the East Hanover Police Department while Sergeant Croker was appointed a lieutenant. Patrolmen Franco and Novalis will be filling their positions and assuming the roles of sergeants for the township. Mayor Pannullo expressed his gratitude toward all of the fantastic officers that applied for the positions. Choosing only four out of all of the great civil servants in the police department was a difficult decision.

The rest of the town council used their time to also congratulate newly minted Captain Ambrose, Lieutenant Croker, and Sergeants Franco and Novalis on their accomplishment and thank them for their years of service to the community.

“Congratulations to all of the officers,” said Councilwoman Carolyn Jandoli. “We are so proud and thankful for all of your service.”

Council President Frank DeMaio as well as Councilmen Brian Brokaw and Michael Martorelli echoed these sentiments and gave their thanks to these newly promoted officers expressing the council’s ongoing gratitude and faith in East Hanover’s finest.
