Newtown police veteran officer Bart Lorancaitis was promoted to the rank of Sergeant today.
Sgt. Lorancaitis has been a member of the department since 2007 and is an active member of the department's Fatal Accident Reconstruction Team, as well as being a defensive tactics instructor. Sgt. Lorancaitis had been a field training officer for 11 years, where he would train officers fresh out of the police academy preparing them for solo patrol.
"His mentoring and first line supervising experience as an FTO will greatly benefit Sgt Lorancaitis in his transition from officer to supervisor. We are excited to have him join the supervisor staff and look forward to continuing to work with him in this new role," said Sgt Jeff Silver
