Major Steven A. Nigrelli, a 25 year veteran of the New York State Police, has been appointed to command Troop "A," overseeing 400 civilian and sworn State Police personnel throughout the eight counties of Western New York.

Nigrelli started his career in 1990, serving as a uniform Trooper in Troop “D” in Central New York until he was assigned to the Community Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET) in 1994 in both Western and Central New York, where he worked undercover for over five years. Nigrelli then was promoted to sergeant and investigator in 1999, and was assigned to Troop “A” Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI).

In 2003 while in Troop A, he received his promotion to Lieutenant and was assigned to supervise the Troop “A” BCI. In March of 2007, Nigrelli was promoted to captain, accepting an assignment as the Troop “A” Zone III Commander at SP Jamestown. In 2008, he was reassigned as the Troop “A” Zone II Commander at SP Clarence. As a Zone Commander, Nigrelli was responsible for overseeing all Uniform operations in his zone. In 2012, Nigrelli was promoted to BCI Captain for Troop A at Troop “A” Headquarters in Batavia.

Throughout his career, Captain Nigrelli has had the opportunity to work on several high profile cases, including numerous homicides, the Ralph “Bucky” Phillips manhunt, Bike Path Rapist/Killer Task Force, and he served as the scene commander for the investigation of the crash of Continental Flight #3407.

Major Nigrelli has been committed to community service and volunteerism throughout his State Police career. He has dedicated his time and energy to volunteering for Special Olympics and currently sits as both the New York State Torch Run Director and International Executive Council Board of Director for Special Olympics. These organizations are dedicated to raising both funds and awareness for Special Olympics which is comprised of children and adults with individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Prior to joining the State Police, Major Nigrelli briefly served as member of the Buffalo Housing Police and earned a Bachelors Degree from Buffalo State College.
