Mayor Billy Barlow announced today the Oswego Police Department has named Officer Damario Andrello as the 2023 Police Officer of the Year.

Officer Andrello led his shift in calls for service, traffic stops, traffic tickets, issued parking tickets and arrests. Officer Andrello has attended and successfully completed several specialized courses and officer development trainings. He is also a firearms instructor, hostage negotiator, commercial vehicle enforcement inspector, and field training officer. As part of his commercial vehicle enforcement assignment, he has coordinated and worked alongside the DOT and Sheriff’s Department conducting specialized enforcement details in the city. These enforcement details resulted in the issuance of several traffic tickets and increased compliance of the traffic law for commercial vehicles operating within the city.

“The City of Oswego and Oswego Police Department is proud to honor Officer Damario Andrello for his dedication to duty, proactive policing techniques, perseverance, community involvement, investigative skills, and his desire to serve his community,” said Mayor Billy Barlow. “Damario is a vested member of the community as a city resident and police officer and exudes the very best of what it means to be a true public servant,” Barlow said.

Phil Cady, Chief of the Oswego Police Department, said, “Damario Andrello exemplifies the hard work and dedication of our department. His hard work and community service does not go unnoticed, and I am exceptionally proud of the job he has done.”

Officer Andrello has been a liaison with members of the code enforcement department. His teamwork and problem solving with code enforcement has made a better co-response for both departments which has helped to provide a safe environment for the citizens of the city. Due to his sound use of investigative tactics over the past year, Officer Andrello was able to identify and locate suspects and close out several criminal investigations with an arrest. Aside from his duties at the police department, Andrello is also a member of the city planning board.

Damario Andrello has been on the police force for four and a half years.
