Arthur Mirante joins special police force
Garden City Special Police Officer Arthur Mirante took his oath of office during a brief ceremony at the most recent Village of Garden City board meeting. Deputy Mayor Theresa Trouvé did the honors. Mirante grew up in nearby Roslyn Heights and Old Westbury and moved to Cedar Place in Garden City five years ago. He attended Roslyn schools and St. Mary’s High School and went on to graduate from Boston University, subsequently receiving his MBA from New York University. He worked as an equities professional in the finance industry for 25 years. His daughter Carlea is a sophomore at Sacred Heart and his son Arthur attends Garden City Middle School.
Mirante is a licensed securities professional and real estate salesperson, and a former advisory board member of the Nassau County Museum of Art and the Saltzman Children’s Center at Hofstra University. He is also involved in various charitable and cultural organizations throughout the area. As an advocate of the village, Mirante believes the Special Police is an important way to get more involved and give back to his community.
“Thank you very much for your volunteerism, we appreciate it,” Mayor Brian Daughney said.
Garden City Special Police assist the regular police on an as-needed basis. Officers are resident volunteers who help with special patrol duty and pedestrian and traffic control at religious services and community events like the annual Turkey Trot and Homecoming parade.
