Three Bloomfield Police Lieutenants Promoted to Captain


BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- Three long-tenured Bloomfield Police Lieutenants were promoted to the rank of Captain Tuesday night at a ceremony where they were joined by their families and dozens of Bloomfield Police personnel. New Captains Anthony Sisco, George Ricci and Patsy Spatola have been with the department a combined 70 years.

The ceremony began with the pledge of allegiance, followed by speeches from Essex County Freeholder and former Bloomfield Councilman Carlos Pomares, Bloomfield Mayor Michael Venezia, Township Administrator Matthew Watkins and Bloomfield Director of Public Safety Samuel DeMaio.

“I would like to congratulate Captains Sisco, Ricci and Spatola on their much-deserved promotions,” said Mayor Venezia. “Under the leadership that begins with Director DeMaio, each of these men has contributed to making Bloomfield a safer place to live, and and I wish them continued success.”

Over the past four years, all crimes are down 50% in Bloomfield, and civilian complaint are down as well, due in large part to a re-emphasis on community policing, and public involvement in police activities, such as the ongoing Citizen Police Academy and Summer Jr. Police Academies, both free and open to members of the public.

“Captains Spatola, Ricci and Sisco have each worked dozens of difficult cases that have made Bloomfield a safer place to live, and consistently handled themselves in accordance with our department’s high standards,” said Director of Public Safety Samuel DeMaio. “Each of these men have all demonstrated professionalism throughout their careers, and their experience has been of great assistance to myself, Deputy Police Chief Sean Schwindt and everyone in our department. I am confident they will continue to lead by example.”
