Two of North Arlington’s finest promoted in ceremony earlier this week

North Arlington police Capt. Michael Horton and Lt. Kyle Stec were sworn in to their new positions Dec. 14 at a Borough Council meeting. “We have a full table of organization and look forward to seeing more police on the streets of North Arlington, especially when the new work schedule goes into effect in January,” Mayor Daniel H. Pronti said. “The department is going to a Pitman schedule, which historically provides more police coverage while also increasing officer morale.” Seen at the ceremony are, from left, Councilman Brian Fitzhenry, Horton, Chief Scott Hedenberg, Stec and Pronti.
