Sgt. Mirra started her career with the Hopewell Township Police Department in September of 2010. After spending several years in patrol, in 2017 she was transferred to the Detective Bureau, making her the first female in the department’s history to hold the rank of detective.
In addition to her work with HTPD, Sgt. Mirra is very dedicated to several different community policing efforts; she created the first HTPD Pride Patch to raise funds for a local group home. She volunteers with a mentorship program for LGBTQ+ youth and has helped to equip all of the HTPD frontline vehicles with sensory communication kits to aid in connecting with people with Autism and other difficulties.
Sgt. Mirra currently serves as the department’s LGBTQ Liaison, S.A.F.E. Coordinator, and is a member of one of the department’s Crisis Intervention Teams (CIT). She earned her M.A. in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College in 2021. While earning her degree, she worked as a volunteer crisis counselor for the New York City suicide hotline.
Police Director Robert Karmazin says of Sgt. Mirra, “It’s an absolute pleasure to promote such an outstanding officer, one who has a tremendous heart for the Hopewell Township community.”
Congratulations, Sgt. Mirra, and thank you for your devoted service to our community!
