Lower Township has officially swore in its new police chief. Lower Township’s new police chief, William Mastriana, has 20 years experience with the department advancing through the ranks and working divisions from patrol to detective. Mastriana has spent most of his life in the township. He was born in Levittown, Pa. and moved to the township at the age of 12. He graduated from the Richard M. Teitelman School and Lower Cape May Regional High School. Expanding the police department’s use of social media such as Facebook and other media outlets is a goal, he said, in order to keep residents better informed and get public input.
