Matthew Romano

Bronx Borough Trustee

Matt started with the department in 2007, where he was assigned to the North Infirmary Command.  In February 2009, he was given the opportunity to attend the Instructor Development course and after a few years, was transferred to the George R. Vierno Center. 

In November 2010 he was transferred to the Firearms and Tactics Unit where he became a firearms instructor.   While assigned to FTU, Matt trained the members of this agency from recruits to the most senior members in firearms safety and proficiency.  He developed a passion to help and teach the members on a daily basis, where the goal is to go home the same way they came to work.

In 2013 he proudly and with honor joined the NYCD Pipe Band, where he honored the members in the department in countless ceremonies, funeral and memorial services. 

In October 2014, Matt was elected delegate of the Firearms and Tactics Unit, and held that position for six years. He applied his passion and knowledge to benefit the membership of the department. 

In June 2020, Matt was elected to the COBA Executive Board holding the position of Bronx Borough Trustee. He is dedicated to provide the best possible representation for his fellow brother and sister officers.
