On Tuesday afternoon, Sergeant David Bruckenthal was sworn in to the rank of Captain by the Bethel Chief of Police, Jeffery Finch. The ceremony took place at the Bethel Police Department where many of Bruckenthal’s family, friends and fellow members of the Bethel Police Department gathered to celebrate.
Bruckenthal replaces Captain Robert Cedergrin, who has taken a new assignment. Cedegrin was present for the ceremony as were many others who have worked with Bruckenthal over the years.
Bruckenthal has been with the Bethel Police Department for 28 years, and well wishers said that he was very worthy of the position.
Chief Finch welcomed Bruckenthal into the position saying that there will be many forks in the road, but that he was confident Bruckenthal was ready to make the right choices in direction, even though it might sometimes be difficult.
Congratulations to Captain Bruckenthal!
