WOODLAND PARK, NJ - Woodland Park Police Department Officer Joe Domicolo was promoted on June 20 to sergeant.

Sgt. Domicolo has been with the department for 10 years. "To say he an outstanding human being does not begin to scratch the surface," Chief Eileen Tiernan said about the sergeant.

Mayor Keith Kazmark recollected about knowing Joe when he was in high school as he was his next door neighbor for a time. 

"He's always respectful, warm and good natured, " the mayor said. "I have never in all my years had a single complaint about Joe. His recommendation letter from Chief Tiernan was second to none."
