Jack Mancusi is a 1983 graduate of Glen Cove High School and later received a business degree from SUNY Oneonta. He then spent 25 years working the streets of Glen Cove as a Police Officer. In those 25 years he responded to countless calls for service. A sample of calls he answered:
- Crimes in progress
- Domestic disputes
- Auto accidents (ranging from fender benders to fatalities)
- Ambulance calls
- Missing persons
- The passing of loved ones
There were many others. After 16 years as a patrol officer, he was promoted to the rank of Patrol Sergeant. During his nine years as a Sergeant, he supervised patrol officers in the course of their duties. Jack also supervised the Training Unit where he instructed all members of the department on topics including the reasonable use of force, firearms, non-lethal devices (TASER), and de-escalation.
Most of a Police Officer’s interactions are unremarkable; a simple traffic stop, an alarm call, a customer/manager dispute. Others, although brief, can become quite intensely personal. Grieving the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one, reassuring the victim of a violent attack, and providing assistance to people trapped in a cycle of domestic violence are some examples.
Jack has a unique perspective on Glen Cove from both residential and city management perspectives. He applies the skills acquired during his career to re-engage anyone who has “checked out” of local politics.
As your Councilman, Jack focuses his efforts on discovering the will of the citizens of Glen Cove. By using his career skills to engage and evaluate community need, he is helping to establish a master plan for the City that makes sense to all. He evaluates all new development proposals and will permit them only if they move Glen Cove forward toward prosperity and don’t negatively impact the residents of our fine city.
