Today is a special day for the Bridgewater Police Department.
At a 3 p.m. ceremony in the municipal courtroom, three officers will be promoted and a Bridgewater-Raritan High School graduate will be honored.
Promoted will be Lt, Alfred Nicaretta to captain; Sgt. Gregory Duane to lieutenant and Officer John Mitzak to sergeant.
The police department will also be recognizing Sara Semple, the high school student who in 2009 advised her guidance counselor of threatening/disturbing text messages she was receiving from a male student. The messages spoke of a Columbine type event that he planned for the high school.
The male student was subsequently arrested and evidence was seized from his residence which proved the threat was credible.
Sara, who attends college, just recently consented to be recognized for actions.
