New Falls Police Superindendent begins his watch by putting more officers on the streets

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — DalPorto also hasn’t shied away from making dramatic moves to combat a rising crime rate. Among his first orders, DalPorto dispersed the officers of the Roving Anti-Crime Unit back into the Patrol Division.

The former Narcotics Division lieutenant, who commanded RAC, said it wasn’t an easy move to make.

“That was a difficult decision. These guys are like my kids,” DalPorto said of the eight-officer unit. “But I spoke to them all, individually, and they understand why I did this. This is no reflection on the job they did. They are all very good officers and they’ll continue to do good work.”
