Niagara Gazette — “In my career, I’ve seen the whole gamut of situations,” he said. “And I’m not sure you experience that anywhere else except as a city cop.”
DeMarco will have the chance to influence up and coming officers even in his retirement.
He’ll join the faculty in the Criminal Justice Department at Niagara University for the fall 2013 semester.
He says he’ll miss the people who worked with in the Falls force and even some of the criminals he encountered on the streets.
“Everybody has some good in them,” he says with a chuckle.
DeMarco said he hopes his legacy is that he “made a difference for the officers in this department, to make the job better for them.”
“I was just a guy who did my job. It’s not about what I did, it’s about what the department did,” he said. “I just wanted to be a cop. It was an honor to be a police officer for the city of Niagara Falls.”
