The Monmouth County Prosecutors Office recently announced that four detectives, each with a record of accomplishment and diverse experience, have joined the Office. Amongst them is Brookdale Alumni Joseph Friscia of Union Beach.  

The other three detectives are Nicolas Logothetis of Hazlet, Connor Johnson of Morris County, and Aaron Shaw of Eatontown. The new detectives all have deep experience in a multitude of areas in the community.   

“We consider ourselves truly fortunate to be welcoming four dynamic detectives who throughout their careers have made a habit of serving the public with distinction and honor,” said Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Lori Linskey. “Our sincere expectations for each of them is that they continue to build upon their already stellar body of work.”   

Brookdale Alumni Joseph Friscia, an eight-year Union Beach Police Department veteran, most recently served as a sergeant. He supervised a contingent of approximately 30 sworn officers and was also designated as his department’s resiliency officer, assisting colleagues in coping with stressors inherent to the job.   

He was a recipient of the 2019 Union Beach Police Department Officer of the Year “Officer William H. Letts Award.” Friscia has a record of accomplishment in working the department’s most high-profile and intensive narcotics, sex crimes, and internal affairs cases.   

He holds an associate degree from Brookdale Community College, Lincroft, and a bachelor’s degree from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, New York.   

“Our hiring process for new detectives is rightfully rigorous, and for good reason – this team of new hires with these outstanding credentials marks nothing short of a wealth of riches for the Office,” Acting Chief of Detectives John G. McCabe, Jr. said. “We have every confidence that they are capable of making an immediate contribution to our office, our cases and our residents.”  

Brookdale’s Criminal Justice two-year degree program is both a transfer and a career program. For more information visit
