ONEONTA – Detective Sgt. Christopher J. Witzenburg will be recommended to a Common Council vote as Chief Doug Brenner’s top choice for Lieutenant during their meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 5.
“He’s a natural choice,” said Brenner. “We work very well together and have through our entire career.”
Witzenburg has served as an Oneonta Police officer for 19 years, starting as a patrol officer and rising through the ranks. In March, he took the Chief’s civil service exam and passed, although he was not in the top three. “His experience speaks for itself,” said Brenner.
