  1. This town is truly blessed to have a police force that consists of the nicest and the most caring group of officers. Just today I interacted with a police officer and he was so warm and helpful. All the promotions are well deserved but for one it’s more personal. Want to congratulate Officer (now Sergeant) Andrew Solomon on his well deserved promotion. He’s an officer who’s won the hearts of many as someone who shows such professionalism in his day to day interactions with the people of Lakewood and is someone who is caring and kindhearted. He came to my house a year ago and I witnessed all of the above first hand. Congrats to all!
