ROSELAND, NJ — Roseland Detective William Mildon will serve the borough in a new capacity after the mayor and council unanimously voted to approve his promotion to captain at last week.

Councilman David Jacobs, chairman of the police committee, said Mildon has made the community extremely proud and that “what he does for the community is what it’s all about.” Chief of Police Richard McDonough said Mildon is a true professional, a leader and a motivator, and that in his remaining years as chief, he looks forward to working side-by-side with Mildon.

“There are certain things that define titles and actions, and I truly believe that Billy defines the definition of policeman,” said McDonough. “He’s here to protect and serve this community and see nothing less of that community. I don’t know anyone as committed as Billy is to this community and this profession.”

Mayor John Duthie said he was grateful to have such a great cast within the Roseland Police Department, and that the safety of the community and the respect the community has for its police officers is one of the things that brought him to Roseland.

“It’s nice to see folks climb the ranks within the department to take leadership roles and earn them and respect them,” he said.

Mildon thanked his family, his fellow officers, and the mayor and council for supporting him at the swearing-in ceremony. He specifically acknowledged his son, stating that he hopes the promotion will serve as proof to his son that hard work and perseverance pays off.

With the exception of Councilwoman Michele Tolli, who was absent from the meeting, the entire council congratulated Mildon on this “well-deserved” next step in his career.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
