The Wilton Police Department just made its second promotion of the new year.
At the Town Hall Annex on Feb. 23, Wilton patrol officer Stephen Sisenstein was promoted to the rank of sergeant.

Sisenstein joined the Wilton Police Department as a patrol officer in May 2001.

In 2014, he was assigned to be a field training officer, a senior member of the department who receives special instructor training and is responsible for training recruits.

In 2015, Sisenstein was assigned to the Miscellaneous Assignment to the Chief (MAC). Officers in the MAC perform traffic surveys and undertake community service-related duties.

According to a police press release, “Sisenstein’s personnel file contains many letters of gratitude and praise from within the community and the department, along with several Letters of Recognition.”

Sisenstein is the second Wilton officer promoted to sergeant in 2016. On Jan. 20, K-9 handler Steven Rangel was promoted to sergeant from the rank of officer.

“I'm very happy I was promoted,” Sisenstein told The Bulletin, “and I’m looking forward to embarking on this new stage of my career. I’ve been serving for 15 years now, and I hope to serve as a sergeant for just as many, or even more.”

“The Wilton Police Department is like a second family to me,” he continued. “It’s been that way since 2001.”
