Hoboken Police Chief Ken Ferrante tweeted this afternoon:
The Chief, not yet 50 years old, has lived in Hoboken his entire life. Ferrante’s policing career started in Hoboken as a patrolman. He later became a supervisor. He served two years as Coordinator of Hoboken’s Office of Emergency Management. During major events, such as Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Irene, he served as a commander.
He was a lieutenant before becoming Chief in December, 2014.
Everyone in Hoboken today is giving a hearty salute.
