EPD Officers Sworn In at City Council Meeting

By Christina Georgiou

The Easton Police Department officially gained four new officers, and promoted another Wednesday evening during a swearing-in ceremony at the city council meeting.

Joseph Alonzo, who worked for the EPD criminal investigations division, took on the rank of sergeant, while Jamie Hauze, Frank Rezes, Margaret Stahlnecher, and Matthew Thornton all were sworn in as patrol officers.

Thornton, who already had Act 120 certification, is already patrolling the city, Rezes has just begun field training, and Hauze and Stahlnecher, still in police academy training, will be on duty when they graduate in December.

Stahlnecher is not the first woman  officer on the force, but is the only one in some time, Chief Carl Scalzo said.

The additional officers bring the number in the EPD to 61, out of a total 63 on the force.
