The Little Falls Police Department welcomed their newest member. Tommy Trommelen was officially sworn in by Mayor James Damiano as a new officer on Sept. 15.
Trommelen was born and raised in Clifton. After graduating from Clifton High School, he began volunteering for the Little Falls Fire Department as a firefighter and as an emergency medical technician during the summer 2011. He then became a Passaic County Jail corrections officer with the Passaic County Sheriff’s Department. After attending the Bergen County Police Academy, he worked as an officer with the Clifton Police Department prior to coming to Little Falls.
“Community policing is one of the biggest things I feel I bring from my past experiences,” Trommelen said. “I’m hoping to serve the residents of Little Falls to the best of my ability.”
Damiano commended Trommelen as being a great addition to the police department.
“Today, I had the honor of swearing in Officer Tommy Trommelen, our newest police officer here in Little Falls,” said Damiano. “Tommy is a former fire dispatcher and EMT here and will be a great fit for our Little Falls community. Wishing Tommy a long and safe career here in Little Falls.”
