November was a bitter-sweet month for the Toms River Police Department. We are sad to see Sergeant Timothy Sysol retire. Sgt. Sysol’s incredible work ethic, professionalism and fantastic sensor of humor will be greatly missed on a daily basis, but he is forever part of our TRPD family! Congratulations on your retirement Sergeant Sysol!
We are proud to promote Officer Vincent Pedalino to the rank of sergeant. Sgt. Pedalino has been an outstanding member of this police department for 13 years. His hard work and dedication as well as high energy and awesome sense of community are evident wherever he is! Congratulations Sergeant Pedalino.
With the recent retirements within TRPD, we are able to hire two new officers to our family. Please join us as we welcome Officer David Talty and Officer Michael Rienstra.
Officer Talty began his law enforcement career as a Class I and Class II Special Law Enforcement Officer with the Point Pleasant Beach Police Department. He later went on to work with the Tinton Falls Police Department as a Class II Officer before being hired full time by the Deal Police Department in 2014.
Officer Rienstra is enlisted in the NJ Air National Guard and graduated Basic and Technical training as a Munitions Systems Specialist. In 2017 he served a short tour in South Korea and continues to serve at the 177th Fighter Wing in Egg Harbor Twp, NJ.
