Swan, general manager for the utilitys Stamford/Norwalk district, was sworn in during todayҒs police promotion ceremonies at Town Hall by First Selectwoman Diane Goss Farrell.
Police Chief William Chiarenzelli explained that Swan long has been closely involved in emergency preparedness meetings and planning sessions.
But he said Swan often had to leave the room when the discussions turned to classified matters, especially involving planning for possible terrorist attacks.
By making Swan a sworn adviser to the department complete with his own badge ֖ he said this problem was eliminated.
Chiarenzelli said he was especially happy to have Swan a sworn member of the police department team.
He said it was Swans late father-in-law, Samuel Luciano, who was chief of the department when he first joined 40 years ago. Swan, a 1967 graduate of Staples High School, is married to LucianoҒs daughter Carol.
Luciano died in 1970 at the age of 57 and is remembered by longtime Westporters as one of the communitys finest police commanders.
