BLOOMFIELD, NJ-- During the viewing yesterday, hundreds of police officers were seen along Broad Street paying their respects to retired Bloomfield Police Officer, Benedetto “Benny” Christiano, who lost his battle to Covid on March 2, 2021 at the age of 53.

This morning, members of the Bloomfield Police Department along with many other agencies said their final goodbye.   

Christiano, who retired in December 2020 after 27 years of service, was diagnosed with COVID shortly thereafter. He unfortunately passed away Tuesday after he fought valiantly for months.
