His passing leaves a hole in the Falls Police Department’s collective heart. But his memory will always linger with his fellow cops and those of us lucky to really have gotten to know him.
To his family and friends, I extend my deepest sympathies and condolences. We, and this city, are poorer for his passing.
So next time you hit your knees to say something to the man upstairs, ask him to be on the lookout for Bill Gee.
Getting the “cred”
On a happier note, congratulations to the men and women working in the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office Civil Division.
The New York State Sheriff’s Association has recently granted the division its full accreditation. The accreditation means the office has met 121 individual standards of excellence in the performance of its duties.
In its announcement of the accreditation, the association said, “(It) is a seal of approval that brings state-wide recognition to the efforts made by Sheriff (James) Voutour, and his staff, to make the Civil Division a truly professional operation which is responsive to the needs of the people of Niagara County.”
