“We had the honor of swearing in the newly promoted superior officers of the KPD yesterday: â€‹Capt. John View, Capt. Michael Ryan, Lt. John Corbett, Jr., Lt. Glenn Reed, Sgt. Angelo Palagano and Sgt. Benjamin Wuelfing,” Mayor Al Santos posted on Facebook.
“We not only recognized their individual achievements, but also the extraordinary work of KPD in crime deterrence, crime solving, and community policing. Thank you KPD!”
The over 100-member West Hudson police force has been led by Chief George King, a 35-year veteran of the department, since December 2017.
The police promotions preceded a town council vote to ban single-use plastic bans, making them the fifth municipality in Hudson County to do so.
