  1. How about we spend some of that overtime loot on more cops????

    One doesn’t cut it, we need like 5 or 6!!!

    Starting salary is 54,000, we avg. 500,000 a year in overtime, half of this would pay for 5 cops.

    Then lets get a leader who “actually” leads and has higher management qualities!!!

  2. Jim one should investigate the past few hires at Rye and look at civil service hiring violations by Connors. Not the cops fault but continues to not hire Rye residents but the past few hires all have a father grandfather or Uncle who had very high ranking positions in PD’s in the regions. Just saying something smells foul. But hey Rye City Hall is in the business of braking the law and doing its own thing.
