The pair will fill vacancies created by recent retirements
Two respected county law-enforcers were sworn in Monday as Chester County detectives, District Attorney Tom Hogan announced.
James F. Ciliberto, a longtime state trooper, and Thomas J. Goggin, a veteran of the Phoenixville Police Department, took the oath before President Judge James P. MacElree II, Hogan said.
“Jim Ciliberto and Tom Goggin are experienced, aggressive, and dedicated investigators,” Hogan said. “They have worked with and earned the respect of law enforcement throughout Pennsylvania. The Chester County Detectives are continuing to add to their already strong ranks.”
Prior to joining the Chester County Detectives, Ciliberto worked with the Pennsylvania State Police at the Avondale barracks for over 20 years, Hogan said, adding that Ciliberto has extensive experience working homicide, child abuse, and other major cases. A graduate of West Chester University, where he earned a summa-cum-laude degree in history, Ciliberto has been named Trooper of the Year on multiple occasions, Hogan said.
Goggin joins the Chester County Detectives after completing over two decades with the Phoenixville Police Department, where he handled cases ranging from street crime to complex homicides. He received his undergraduate degree in organizational management from Eastern College and his master’s degree in criminal justice from West Chester University.
“Detectives Ciliberto and Goggin have demonstrated their abilities over the years, and they know Chester County backwards and forwards,” said Hogan. “With their addition, the Chester County Detectives will continue to work with law enforcement across the county to keep Chester County a safe place to live, work, and raise a family.”
Ciliberto and Goggin will fill vacancies created by recent retirements, Hogan said.
