Promotions continue at Windsor Locks Police Department
July 10, 2013
The Windsor Locks Police Department continued its efforts to improve command structure Wednesday when it presented the promotion of two department members to the police commission.
The commission voted to approve the promotion of Sergeant Clifford Smith to Lieutenant and Officer Sebastian Garofalo to Sergeant.
"Both of these men have the respect of the community, the commission and their peers. They are both going to have a large role in the restructuring and revitalizing the police department," Police Commission Chair Kevin Brace said of the two men who are lifelong friends, having grown up together in Hartford.
"It is really fantastic that they were both promoted on the same night," added Brace.
Garofalo and Smith have eight and nine years on the force in Windsor Locks, respectively.
According to a report presented by Police Chief Eric Osanitsch, the promotions leave two vacant sergeant positions in the department.
Candidates for those two positions, Osanitsch said, will likely be presented to the commission for approval by the commission meeting in August.
