Three Darien police officers are being promoted in rank, Police Chief Donald Anderson announced Monday:
- Field Services Sgt. Alison Hudyma to the rank of lieutenant
- Youth Detective James Palmieri to the rank of sergeant
- Training Lt. Robert Shreders to captain
“Please join me in congratulating our officers who are receiving these well-deserved promotions,” Anderson said in a news release. “History has shown, time and time again, that achieving promotion in our agency is always the result of a highly competitive process among many quality candidates.”
The promotions take effect Tuesday, Sept. 10.
“The Police Commission noted again just this morning, and I wholeheartedly agree, that we have a stellar staff in the Darien Police Department,” Anderson continued.
“It is indeed a fine ‘problem’ to have when the promotion process is always quite difficult due in part to the high quality of our personnel competing for promotion at virtually every rank and position.”
“I have said it many, many times and I will say it again here; I would put the fine men and women of the Darien Police Department up against any professional police department out there and be very confident in our chance of success.
“The Town of Darien continues to be well served by the police professionals promoted here today as well as all those who competed in the promotional process.”
