City's new top cop


Niagara Gazette — "I would say there are several senior officers (on the force), any one of whom would have made a good chief," the mayor said. "But over the last year, the field narrowed itself. Bryan was the clear choice."

The mayor also pointed to DalPorto's experience as a commander with the 107th Airlift Wing and his reputation with the Falls Police Department as factors that weighed heavily in is choice.

"The respect that Bryan had from his superior officers, his peers and the rank-and-file officers was very important," Dyster said. 

DalPorto called his appointment "an honor" and "humbling."

"I'm settling into the job and I'm starting to make the directional changes that need to be made," he said. "Every time I make a (move) I get more comfortable with (being in command)."

Facing potential budget constraints on his department in the coming year, DalPorto also said he's prepared to make "tough decisions."

"I've made tough decisions before and when you affix the brass on your shoulders, that's what you agree to do," he said.

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.
