Mayor Morse to Promote Four Police Officers in Ceremony Text Size

 This Thursday, Mayor Alex Morse will preside over a promotion ceremony for four Holyoke police officers. Lt. Matthew F. Moriarty will be promoted to captain; Sgt. Joseph Garcia will be promoted to provisional lieutenant; Officer Richard Conner will be promoted to provisional sergeant; and Officer Patrick T. Leahy will be promoted to provisional sergeant.

Mayor Morse and Chief Neiswanger are confident that these promotions will help further promote the philosophy of community policing that has been in effect for the past four years. Crime in Holyoke dropped by 43% from 2013-2014, and the Police Department is looking to continue this success.
