Today, Tues, we are heading over to the Common Council mtg. Police Oversight is meeting at 2:00pm. Topic of discussion will be the changing of the Det's shifts, as well, shorting A Dist a Capt position. We will enlighten them about the horrendous vehicle situation as well.

Keeping our fellow firefighter in our prayers.
Busy week, had Board of Directors on Monday, Tues and Wed we were in Albany for PCNY. Thursday was our monthly meeting and promotional ceremony, congrats to all that have been promoted !!!
Lt Rickey Lark and Det Mike Mordino had very nice send offs respectively. We wish them nothing but the best !!
Two more Narcotics detectives have been cut, as well another from Homicide.....
AIU PO John Petricca was given a warm send off last evening. Solid guy, wish him a long healthy retirement !!
Capt Phil Serafini had a very nice send off last evening. Great guy, we wish him the best !!!
We are still settling in to the new office. Phones are still being worked on, hopefully this is resolved soon.
I had to laugh when I saw the body camera stories on the news. Newsflash - we aren't going to/ don't have cars to get to the calls to create footage. There were 7 functioning police cars in E dist the other night. To run the overlap we need 21 for patrol officers alone. This must be a purposeful attempt to decrease the number of arrests, if cops can't get to calls then they can't make arrests...
