Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states, “Commissioner Clapprood has done an exemplary job and has been well received and respected by the public and our Police Department during some very trying and challenging times in the world of policing. From fast tracking the implementation of body worn cameras to continuing to expand our C3 Neighborhood Policing to moving P.E.R.F. reform initiatives that strengthen and enhance community police relations, Commissioner Clapprood’s tough, fair, heartful and decisive leadership style and vision has brought stability and confidence to our public and our department. Again, I thank her and our ‘men and women in blue’ for their continued brave and dedicated efforts to keep all our residents, neighborhoods and business community safe and sound.
“I’m honored in the confidence Mayor Sarno has shown in me and his continued support. I am thankful for the support the women and men of the department have given me, both sworn and civilian. I am anxious to continue the important programs and changes I started as Acting Commissioner,” said Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood.
Commissioner Clapprood’s contract is for four years and a formal swearing in ceremony will be held in the very near future.
