I am a SRO/DARE Officer in Ossining, N.Y. (Westchester County). I have had the opportunity to spend some time in Payson and I am proud and pleased to see a fellow officer being complimented for a great job by the kids themselves, the people he is serving.
I would hope when I am due to leave and retire -- possibly to Payson -- I would get the respect and admiration of all 1,500 of my high school kids, and all 350 of my fifth-graders.
Great job, Officer Steve Montgomery, good luck in your new position and may it be as rewarding as SRO.
Det. John J Girolamo, Ossining Police Department, New York
