The Rochester Police Department is pleased to announce the recent promotion of Nicholas Alexander to the rank of Sergeant. The promotion was announced at a recent Police Commission meeting and comes after 7 years of dedicated service to the department.
Since joining the Rochester Police Department, Sgt. Alexander has spent most of his time in the Patrol Division on the evening shift. He is also a firearms instructor, armorer, and Field Training Officer (FTO), demonstrating a commitment to excellence and leadership.
In addition to his role as a police officer, Sgt. Alexander has served in the Coast Guard since 2009 and continues to do so. His most recent assignment prior to the promotion was serving in the department’s Problem Oriented Policing (POP) unit, where he targeted quality-of-life issues and worked to determine their root causes.
Chief Boudreau noted that with the shortage in the Dispatch Center, Sgt. Alexander has helped out tremendously and has become a very proficient dispatcher filling numerous open shifts.
Sgt. Alexander was administered the Oath of Office by Executive Secretary Becky Warburton, while his daughters pinned his badge. He will be assigned to the Patrol Division in his new role as Sergeant.
The Rochester Police Department congratulates Sgt. Nicholas Alexander on his promotion and looks forward to his continued contributions to the department and the community.
