25 Bloomfield Police Officers Recieve Recognition at Award Ceremony

Police Ceremony

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- 25 Police officers were honored at a ceremony yesterday in the Bloomfield Township Council Chambers attended by friends and family, Mayor Michael Venezia, other elected officials, Director of Public Safety Samuel DeMaio, and members of the public.

“I would like to congratulate each and every one of our award recipients. Your work to keep our community safe, and our residents feel engaged in the process of community policing helps make this town a wonderful place to live,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “On behalf of my Council colleagues, I would like to thank you all.”

Over the past four years, crime in Bloomfield is down by 50% across the board, and civilian complaints 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.

The award recipients are:

Lieutenant Anthony Argento                           

Officer Joseph Condito                                                                      

Officer Patrick Nimer                                                                        

Officer Gemner Rosales

Officer Caesar Mazzeo

Officer Joseph Davis 

Officer Nelson Chamba                                            

Lieutenant Nick Polidoro

Officer Reggy Joseph 

Officer Michael Devenney

Officer Michael Malia

Officer Caesar Mazzeo

Officer George Guadalupe

Detectives Sue Looges

Officer Frank Dilkes 

Officer Manley

Officer Robert Mazariegos

Officer Matthew Mazzola

Sgt. Anthony Litterio

Officer Glenn Capito

“We’ve made tremendous progress in public safety each of the past four years, thanks to cooperation from the Mayor’s administration, my Captains, Lieutenants, and Deputy Chief, but it flat out does not happen without the hard work of every single member of our department. You’ve all stepped up and transformed the police culture in this town, and I want to say thank you, and congratulations,” said Director of Public Safety Samuel DeMaio. “You have all demonstrated professionalism and leadership skills in your time with the department, and I look forward to continuing to watch your careers progress.”
