Medel Promoted to Lieutenant With Beach Haven Police

Jun 14, 2017

The Beach Haven Borough Council has approved the promotion of Thomas Medel from sergeant to lieutenant in the police department. Medel took the oath of office, administered by acting manager/borough clerk Sherry Mason, at Monday night’s meeting. The 50-year-old officer has been with the department for 18 years. He is also a former Beach Haven fire chief and fire company president.

“As a lieutenant, I’ll be more involved in administrative work,” he said. “It will probably mean less time on the road.”

“It is a very well-deserved promotion,” said Councilman Charles E. Maschal. “I saw him go into action when a person had a heart attack while at Tuckers (Tavern). He’s one of finest officers in town.” E.E.
