The Times of Trenton reports Ralph Rivera Jr.’s nomination could be put before the City Council next month.

Rivera served with the state police for 27 years, rising to the rank of major before retiring. He then served as executive undersheriff with the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office for five years.

Trenton Mayor Tony Mack could not be reached for comment Wednesday night. But Steve Glickman, the city’s labor attorney, told the newspaper that Mack had settled on Rivera for the post.

Rivera could not be reached for comment. If approved by the council, he would become Trenton’s first permanent police director since Mack was elected nearly two years ago.
