Port Washington Police District Promotes Three Officers For Service To The Community

The Port Washington Police District (PWPD) is proud to announce the promotions of three very deserving officers who continue to move up the ranks and go above and beyond each day. Among those officer promotions were Detective John Steadman, who was promoted to sergeant, as well as Sergeant Alex Mott and Detective/Sergeant Nicholas Dello-Iacono, both of whom were promoted to lieutenant.

“The Port Washington Police District is very selective in our promotion process, making these honors all the more special and deserved,” said PWPD Chairperson Angela Lawler-Mullins. “These promotions serve as recognition of the officers’ steadfast commitment to bravely serving the Port Washington community. They are a true representation of the hard work our District puts in toward protecting our residents and being a valuable asset to this community. They exemplify the best in all of us and have earned every bit of these accolades.”

Detective Steadman’s police career began upon his hiring at the New York City Police Department in 2011, where he worked in the Manhattan South Impact Division and 5th Precinct. He joined the PWPD on February 6, 2015, was assigned to the Problem-Oriented Policing Unit in 2019 and was assigned to the Detective Division in 2021. He is also a firearms instructor and a member of the District’s drone unit.

Lieutenant Mott was originally hired by the PWPD on November 24, 2010 and was promoted to sergeant in 2016. He is known around the District as one of the brightest officers, having finished atop the promotional lists for both the sergeant and lieutenant tests. He scored a 97.9 percent on the sergeant test in 2016, a full eight points higher than any other officer in recent years.

Lieutenant Dello-Iacano first signed on at the PWPD on March 25, 2008 and has risen up the ranks ever since. He was assigned to the Detective Division in 2014, promoted to sergeant in 2016, appointed as the Commanding Officer of the Problem-Oriented Policing Unit in 2019 and was named the Commanding Officer of the Detective Division in 2022. He was integral in the formation of the PWPD’s drone unit, of which he continues to serve as supervisor to this day.

“Having worked with all of these officers for many years, I can say with certainty that these promotions are well-deserved,” said PWPD Chief Robert Del Muro. “Each of them brings a unique skillset to our District, all of which are invaluable in our mission to serve the residents of the Port Washington community. I am proud to see them grow to new heights and I am looking forward to working with them in their new roles.”
