Bethlehem Town Supervisor and Town Board to Advance
Gina Cocchiara as New Police Chief
On Wednesday, Bethlehem Town Supervisor David VanLuven will advance Detective Sergeant Gina Cocchiara to serve as the new Police Chief for the Town of Bethlehem before the full Town Board at its regularly scheduled meeting.
Detective Sergeant Cocchiara offered the Town Supervisor and Board members her ambitious vision for modernizing the Police Department with an increased focus on community policing and stronger bonds between Bethlehem Police Officers and the residents they protect and serve. The selection of Gina Cocchiara earned swift praise from Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, and is a historic accomplishment for Bethlehem as Gina will be the first woman to hold the top leadership post in the Town Police Department.
