Andrea Craparotta named interim police chief at Middlesex County College
Andrea Craparotta, acting captain with the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, has been appointed interim director of the Middlesex County College Police Department. The appointment is under a shared services program with the Prosecutor’s Office. She will be paid by the Prosecutor’s Office and maintains her rank but will work at the college full time.
“The MCC Police Department is very fortunate to be able to partner with the Prosecutor’s Office to have someone with Andrea’s experience lead our department and provide a cost savings to the college at the same time,” said Donald R. Drost Jr., executive director of facilities management, who oversees the department.
Craparotta has 25 years of experience in law enforcement, joining the Middlesex Prosecutor’s Office in 1990 after two years in Ocean County. She has experience in investigating homicides, sex crimes, child abuse, bias crimes, narcotics, as well as working with juvenile and training units. She has also served as a training coordinator and administered areas such as supervision of investigations, personnel scheduling, training oversight and budget review.
