On a night in the City Council chambers that was dominated by budget talk and proposed cuts, the City Council chose to start the evening by confirming the appointment of six new Everett Police Officers and confirming the appointment of 12 Auxiliary Police officers at Special Police Officers in the City off Everett.
The six new full-time officers included officers Nicholas Cristiano, Joseph Poirier, James McGregor, Lauren Pagliuca, Stephen Sabella and Carlos Membreno-Lainez.
Nicholas Cristiano and Stephen Sabella are second generation Everett police officers, and both were able to be sworn in with their fathers on hand to witness the event. Lt. Nick Cristiano and Officer Steve Sabella were also invited to join their sons and the other new recruits in posing for pictures with Mayor DeMaria.
Not to be forgotten, the Everett Auxiliary Police Department, an all volunteer department of local residents who seek to aid local fulltime officers, had Chief Leonard Jordan and 11 other members of the Auxiliary sworn in as well.
