Glen Rock June 17, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • Page 3 New police chief has agenda for improvements by John Koster Glen Rock Police Chief Frederick P. Stahman Glen Rock’s new police chief, Frederick P. Stahman, was sworn in June 10 to the skirl of bagpipes and the applause of council and peers. The following day, he was already at work on a desk full of projects. “I’m going to bring back the bicycle patrol and institute a motorcycle patrol to interact with residents, particularly in the downtown area,” Chief Stahman said in his first official day in office. “I feel that it’s going to foster communications between the police and the residents.” Stahman joined the police force in May 1980 after receiving a degree in police science from Bergen Community College. He has developed a reputation as a dedicated and highly intelligent police officer and senior. His is now refining and redefining police procedures, and another project he is working on is a crackdown on underage drinking and illicit house parties, frequent during the graduation season, and a potential threat to the lives of young people and other residents. Stahman’s promotion, along with the promotion to captain of Jonathan Miller, who joined the Glen Rock Police In Home Department 24 years ago, brought out such a capacity crowd of Glen Rock and outside police officers and other public safety personnel that the interim council chambers were packed to the walls and well-wishers had to gather in the corridor. Former Police Chief Neil Finn and former Police Chief Steven Cherry -- Stahman’s immediate predecessor --were among those who turned out to wish Stahman well. The installation was also attended by the new chief’s father, Frederick J. Stahman, his mother Christine Stahman, his sister Dawnn and her husband, Scott DePalma, who flew in from Oregon attend.
