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.
