“We spend a lot of time making sure all members of our community feel safe, included and welcome in our county. Having a dedicated, liaison, whose 1st language is Spanish is a key component to bridging the gap between our police department and the Latino community we serve. Cpl.

I am very pleased and the county is very fortunate that he has accepted this position.” said Chief Timothy J. Altomare.
