Sussex County Sheriff’s Sergeant named law enforcement officer of the year

SUSSEX COUNTY, NJ – Sussex County Sheriff’s Sergeant Krista Galante was recently named the 2018 New Jersey Judicial Security Management Response Team Law Enforcement Officer of the Year.

The team is a cooperative effort between the 21 Sheriff’s Offices of New Jersey, the United States Marshals Service, the New Jersey State Police, and the Court & Judicial Security Unit of the State Judiciary which is responsible for the provision of a statewide task force to protect the judiciary and the maintenance of a statewide protective intelligence database, the Suspicious Activity Monitoring System, to share intelligence with law enforcement agencies throughout the state.

Sergeant Galante has been with the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office since 2003, serving in both the Bureau of Corrections and the Bureau of Law Enforcement. Since the team’s inception in 2015, Sgt. Galante has been a core committee member, ultimately being named Judicial Security Management Response Team Statewide Communications Coordinator in 2017, a role in which she still currently serves.

Sussex County Sheriff Strada congratulates Sgt. Galante on her well deserved recognition and wishes her continued success in her career.
