Police Officer Glen Ciano was killed when his patrol car was struck by a vehicle being driven by an intoxicated operator.

Officer Ciano was responding to assist a fellow officer who had stopped a vehicle with stolen license plates. His patrol car was struck by a vehicle making a left turn onto Commack Road from Vanderbilt Parkway. The force of the collision sent the patrol car off the road and into a utility pole. The patrol car burst into flames, killing Officer Ciano.

The suspect was arrested at the scene and it was determined that he had been operating his vehicle under the influence of alcohol. In January 2011 he was sentenced to only one to four years in prison in connection with Officer Ciano's death.

Police Officer Ciano had served with the Suffolk County Police Department for 22 years and is survived by his wife and two children. He was assigned to the 2nd Precinct.

I grew up with the Ciano family when we were Boy Scouts, Glen was a cheerful, energetic, strong willed young man & seemingly with his father's guidance, also entered the Law Enforcement field becoming a Police officer.
I lost contact with the family in the late '70s but reading the reflections left for Glen shows he was an honourable, dedicated Police Office and a proud example to the rest of his family and to all of us around him.
God Bless.
