Syracuse PD's Mother/Daughter Duo

Written by C.J. Ostrowski. Posted in Latest News

On January 3, 1848 voters from the villages of Salina and Syracuse voted to merge and the City of Syracuse Police Department was formed. In March of 2016, Chief Fowler hired Police Officer Sarah Hassett, who is the daughter of Syracuse Police Officer Carolyn Carbone and the Department's first Mother & Daughter in Blue was established!

Carolyn Carbone and Sarah Hassett are the first mother/daughter duo in the history of the Syracuse Police Department (SPD). Before they became police officers, they earned Criminal Justice degrees from OCC. Carbone graduated from Fowler High School. Her father’s military service inspired her to go into law enforcement and the strong reputation of OCC’s Criminal Justice program brought her to campus. “As I researched the faculty I realized they were retired police officers. Being able to learn from former cops was very important to me.”

Pratt, who was struck and killed by a motor vehicle on 10/26/16, and Investigator Paul R. Stuewer who died from a 911 related illness on 10/05/16. The names of both fallen NYSP members will be added to the NLEOMF wall in DC this year.
