The promotions were awarded to Capt. Stephen DePoe, Lt. Paul Watkins and Sgt. John Lecreux. The new hire is Officer Jordan Descafano. The ceremony was conducted by Chief Mitchell Stern, who was named to that position earlier this month upon the retirement of the VPD’s long-time chief, Doug Huber.
The ceremony was captured on YouTube, and you can watch it here.
It was also photographed by Verona Police Officer Ed Carattini, who shared these photos with MyVeronaNJ.com’s readers. There are more photos on our Facebook page.
