Sinagra Named Deputy Chief of Ulster

On Wednesday, July 16th, Supervisor Nick Woerner and Chief Watzka announced the appointment of Lt. Joe Sinagra to the position of Deputy Police Chief for the town of Ulster. Lt. Sinagra will start the new post August 1st.

Deputy Chief Sinagra has been with the Town of Ulster since 1989. Sinagra began his career 19 years ago in the town of Montgomery as well as working in the Orange County d.a.'s office in 1987.

Sinagra, a life long resident of Ulster County and 1984 graduate of Coleman High School attended St. Bonaventure university and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy. Sinagra has risen through the ranks starting out an Ulster Patrolman, and has been promoted to Sargent, Lieutenant, and to his current position as deputy chief.

In addition to his duties as Deputy Chief, Sinagra is the President of the Meagher School PTA, Secretary of the UC Police Chief's Association and a former President of the East Kingston Fire Department.

I am please to have had the pleasure to work with Deputy Chief Sinagra for the last three years. He has proven to be a true professional that is dedicated to the town of Ulster Police and this community said Town Supervisor Nick Woerner.

On a personal note: I also would like to congratulate Mr. Sinagra, I have known him for the last two years or so and he is a great guy and a good friend. I wish him the best in his new post.

This is one of the hardest working men I have had the pleasure to meet. D.C. Joe ( you just got a nick name Joe ) is dedicated to the residents of the Town of ulster, and maintianing a pro active police presence in our neighborhoods.
Once again, the Town of Ulster has taken politics out of the what is best for its residents.Supervisor Nick Woerner, (a Democratic)appointed the best person for the job, regardles of party enrollment.
Good luck Joe.

I didn't print the comment because your facts were off. Mr. Sinagra has nothing to do with sea-tow.

In any event See-Tow truck is frequently outside of bars - I thought that was an Town of Ulster policeman - sorry if it isn't Sanagra.

I actually met the owner of sea-tow at the fourth of July events---I have no idea who he is but not a fan of mine or the current administration. I can tell you that he is absolutely not a town officer...

I don't know what it has to do with this article. But the local Seatow is run by Paul Kesick who was a Town Police officer I beleive, I think he has since retired or something, and I beleive he is the husband of the Town Justice

Congratulations Deputy Chief Joe Sinagra.
I have known Joe Sinagra for the past eighteen years and can vouch for his professionalism, honesty and dedication to duty. He is a true professional in every sense of the word, and by far the best choice for the second in command position at Ulster P.D..

This job was made for him - it didn't exist until the Good Old Boys created this position.
