About this title


Police work is one of the most important developments of civilization. The detection and prevention of crime is not an exact science. It is an art. It is important that constant training and education continue. A policeman is only a citizen who has chosen to be the servant of the public, one having no more and no less rights than any other citizen. We maintain that the more intelligent he is, and the more he knows of police work, the less well he be an autocrat. He will realize his limitations, will know that a democracy is only as strong as its majority, and that in our country government is with and by the consent of the governed. He will realize that he must work along prescribed lines, that he cannot be used by any persons or organizations to coerce a citizen, or to settle personal grievances, or to enforce private ideas of morality, but should give the maximum of protection with the minimum interference with the lawful rights of a citizen. Autocrat - one who rules without restriction. - George Fletcher Chandler - 1922

A lifelong resident of Western New York, he is a graduate of Genesee Community college and the State University College at Buffalo, New York. He enlisted in the State Police on June 18, 1962 attending the state police school held at Oneonta, New York during that summer. He was assigned to SP Horseheads where the very capable Trooper Kenneth Epler provided his on the job training. During the next three years, he was assigned at SP Albion, SP Allegany and again at Albion. In 1965, he requested and was transferred to SP Batavia patrol where he remained until 1980, when he was detailed to the first Hazmat detail and re-assigned to SP Clarence. While at Batavia, he worked two duty tours on the Loadometer Detail and was elected to the PBA, as the Troop "A" delegate in 1979. He served as the PBA Vice President under President John Canfield until his retirement in 1985. An avid New York Trooper history buff, he maintains a minimuseum at his home with several one-of-a-kind items. He also has in excess of 100 albums containing trooper photo and newspaper articles.
