Police Officer Glen Ciano Shield # 3719 E.O.W.


Recommended Posts

A friend and academy classmate was struck and killed by a drunk driver while responding to a call for assistiance from another officer.

Glen was a good guy and always friendly to everyone.

A "gentle giant" type of guy who despite his size was a total gentleman to everyone.

A former NYPD officer who followed in his father's footsteps. His father (a retired NYPD officer) was killed approx 20 years ago 5 years after he had retired in an auto accident with an unlicensed driver.

Glen was a good guy,friend to all , and will be sorely missed.

The drunk driver has had numerous run-ins with the law in various states and had been arrested approx a month ago for drunk driving in Nassau County and was driving outside the conditions of a conditional license when he struck Glen's vehicle. The suspect who was arrested at the scene had over 2X the legal limit of alcohol in his system.

Police Officer Glen Ciano was killed when his patrol car was struck by a vehicle being driven by an intoxicated operator.

Officer Ciano was responding to assist a fellow officer who had stopped a vehicle with stolen license plates. His patrol car was struck by a vehicle making a left turn onto Commack Road from Vanderbilt Parkway. The force of the collision sent the patrol car off the road and into a utility pole. The patrol car burst into flames, killing Officer Ciano.

The suspect was arrested at the scene and it was determined that he had been operating his vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

Police Officer Ciano had served with the Suffolk County Police Department for 22 years and is survived by his wife and two children. He was assigned to the 2nd Precinct.

Thank you all for the expressions of sympathy.

There were so many officers at the police service last night that my son and I never made it into the funeral home.

Glen would have appreciated the # of guys that came out to say goodbye.

RIP Brother

“The Final Inspection”

The policeman stood and faced his God,

Which must always come to pass.

He hoped his shoes were shining.

Just as brightly as his brass.

“Step forward now policeman.

How shall I deal with you?

Have you always turned the other cheek?

To My church have you been true?”

The policeman squared his shoulders and said,

“No Lord, I guess I ain’t,

Because those of us that carry badges

can’t always be a saint.

I’ve had to work most Sundays,

and at times my talk was rough,

And sometimes I’ve been violent,

Because the streets are awfully tough.

But I never took a penny,

That wasn’t mine to keep…

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,

Though at times I shook with fear.

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I’ve wept unmanly tears.

I Know I don’t deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around

Except to calm their fear.

If you’ve a place for me here,

Lord, It needn’t be so grand.

I never expected or had too much,

But if you don’t…..I’ll understand.

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod.

As the policeman waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

“Step forward now, policeman,

You’ve borne your burdens well.

Come walk a beat on Heaven’s streets,

You’ve done your time in hell.

Thank you all.

Glen's funeral was today and LEOs from far and wide came to pay their respects.

The bad guy has been held on half million dollars bail and is looking at charges being upgraded now since his B.A.C. came back at over .16

.08 is Intox here.

Hoping they convict and sentence him to a long prison term.

Won't bring Glen back but it might make the next guy pause before downing that "one for the road".

I know and understand that alcoholism is a disease, but I hope they throw this bastard in a hole and never let him out again. :angry2:

Someone who drinks, drives and kills someone should be tried for murder one. Screw manslaughter.

Prayers sent for his family.

My fellow workers seem to think that chasing drug dealers all day is the only TRUE police work.

In my eyes, more people are killed (including LEO's) every year by people opperating vehicles that have no right to be on the damn streets in the first place. That is why I became a traffic officer and that is where I put all of my effort. So far this year I have taken 19 people off the road that had "a couple of beers". I also have a 100% conviction rate.

For all the LEO's out there stay safe and remember, you can't help anyone if you don't get there. Be carefull while you are driving, watch where you are going and I'll watch your back!

My prayers are with P.O. Ciano and his family. I wish I would have known about this sooner (i've been away from my computer) as I serve in Rockland County. I would have liked to have gotten some guys/gals together to pay our respects. Be Safe.

Thank you all for your expressions of sympathy and concern.

If you're in the NY area around April 5th there will be a benefit hockey game played at The Rinx in Hauppauge NY (Suffolk County) .

Unk exact time yet but all admission funds will be for the benefit of the family of Glen Ciano.

I will post more details as I get them but the game will be played between the Nassau County Police Department and Suffolk County Police Department hockey teams.

It will be a good game as the players for those teams all are guys with lots of hockey experience and they play hard when pitted against each other.

Please come out and support Glen's family and cheer for the guys playing for a fallen brother.

Due to family considerations the charity game will NOT be played on April 5th as was previously announced here.

I'm sorry if this confuses anyone or fudges up anyones plans.

I spoke yesterday to the SCPD hockey teams captain and the team is willing to play but the family wants some more time.

I will announce again when they set a date/time for the benefit game.

Thank you all for your support.
