Six Police Officers Promoted

Six police officers were sworn into their new positions at Tuesday night's Township Council meeting.

Six police officers were promoted and sworn into their new positions on Tuesday, Dec. 4, including a new captain, two lieutenants and three sergeants. 

"I found myself repeating, 'I couldn't be more proud," Brick Township Police Chief Nils Bergquist said prior to his officers being sworn into their new positions in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

 A captain and lieutenant had retired in the past month, leading to the promotions, township officials said.

"Having officers getting promoted for me was a sign of us getting back to normal," said Councilman Joseph Sangiovanni, who lost his waterfront ranch house to Hurricane Sandy.

The following officers were promoted with their new ranks: Capt. Robert Mazza, Lt. Terrence Covert, Lt. David Forrester, Sgt. Patrick Cook, Sgt. Larry Petrola, and Sgt. Jason Matthews.
