Promotions and honors


Niagara Gazette —

Widely regard as a "great teacher" for young officers, Casale said he doesn't see that role changing.

"There's no way I could do this job any differently," he said.

The department also promoted 23-year veteran officer Ron Cirrito to the rank of lieutenant. After spending 21 years on the overnight shift, Cirrito will take Casale's place as an afternoon shift lieutenant.

"I don't think (the job) will be that different for me," Cirrito said. "And I think my military experience will help out."

A long time field training officer, Cirrito has helped introduce most of the young officers, who will now be under his command, to police work.

"They'll know what I expect," he said. "I'm someone who'll be looking to make them better officers."

DalPorto said he could not be happier with his new additions to the police brass.

"They were both at the top of the (Civil Service) list," the police superintendent said. "But who better to lead patrol (officers) then two people who have spent their whole lives in patrol. They have come up through the ranks, they came from the trenches and, you know, patrol is the backbone of a police department."

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
