WAYNE – Some officers placed their hands on the Bible, others on the Quran. But every one of the 24 Passaic County sheriff's officers promoted on Thursday took the same oath – to uphold the U.S. Constitution – and one of them even made history.

Passaic County appoints first Muslim undersheriff during promotion ceremony





























Nart Hapatsha became the first Muslim to be appointed Passaic County undersheriff, giving him a place in Sheriff Richard H. Berdnik's Cabinet. Hapatsha was one of the first Circassians in the Sheriff's Office when he took the oath of office 33 years ago.

"I'm very honored and humbled," Hapatsha said as a crush of well-wishers surrounded him after the ceremony at the Passaic County Police Academy. "I love the department. A great bunch of guys. The sheriff gave me a shot, and I'm going to take it, and build on it."

Circassians hail from the Caucacus Mountains region between the Black Sea and Caspian Sea, an area that is controlled by Russia. Passaic County has about 5,000 Circassian residents, making it the largest Circassian enclave in the United States.

Hapatsha said he was the third Circassian to join the the Sheriff's Office, and now there are almost 40. He's had many assignments during his career: corrections officer, police academy instructor, SWAT team member, hostage negotiator.

There were promotions up and down the ranks on Thursday, from investigator all the way to undersheriff. Capt. Thomas Adamo was elevated to acting chief warrant officer, and Ronald DeLoreto and Diego Padilla were both elevated to captain.

Berdnik added another member to his Cabinet when he appointed Daryl Walton as acting undersheriff. Berdnik said Walton will remain acting undersheriff until there's another retirement or the Freeholder Board creates the position.

For Walton, the promotion was another step up the ladder in a career that once was stalled by political controversy. In 2010, Walton, a sergeant with the sheriff's Internal Affairs unit, filed a whisteblower lawsuit, alleging he was demoted after investigating the former acting sheriff, Chuck Meyers, for suspected voter fraud.

Meyers was never charged, and the Passaic County superintendent of elections cleared him of any wrongdoing. Walton was then booted from Internal Affairs and reassigned to the Criminal Investigations Division, where he took a pay cut.
