The Commissioner of Public Safety is the head of the Department of Public Safety and is appointed by the Mayor of the City of Rome. As Commissioner of Public Safety, I am empowered to enact, modify, and repeal the orders, rules and regulations of general discipline affecting the Rome Police and Fire Departments. It is also my responsibility to make all appointments, promotions and to change the status of the officers and members of the Police and Fire Departments in accordance with the provisions of civil service law of the State of New York. We are very fortunate to have an excellent, well trained, professional and motivated police and fire department. The members accept their responsibility of preserving the life and property in our community and protecting and serving all of us.
