Six Westfield Police Officers Sworn in at Town Council Meeting

August 6, 2013 at 9:45 PM

WESTFIELD, NJ — Six recently promoted Westfield  police officers were sworn into their new positions at the Westfield Town Council meeting Aug. 6: Christopher Battiloro as captain; William Moffitt as lieutenant; Frank Padovano as lieutenant; Lauren Maloney as sergeant; Michael Walsh as sergeant; and Thomas Ostrander as sergeant.

All officers received applause from around the packed room as they were individually sworn in. Applause was especially enthusiastic for Maloney when Westfield Police Chief David Wayman noted that she is the first female ranking officer in the history of the Westfield Police Department.

“This is truly one of the most exciting things I do as a police chief,” said Wayman at the beginning of the ceremony. He said he was proud of the Westfield Police Department and all of its members.
