Glen Cove Welcomes Four New Finest
Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp and council members seemed delighted to begin the Glen Cove City Council meeting of Tuesday, July 27. The reason? The appointments of a few good men (although not Marines), beginning with four new police officers to the Glen Cove Police Department. Police Chief Timothy Edwards was in attendance to recognize Roberto Telese, Scott Genova, Christopher Morra and Ryan Nardone, all certified as eligible by the Civil Service Commission, as they were officially appointed to the department effective July 30 and given their badges. They four will now attend the Police Academy for a ten-month period and return to Glen Cove to keep the citizenry safe.
