"I can't say enough good things about him. He was a really good cop and a real decent man. He will be sorely missed," said Corsi. "I wish him well."
Cunningham said he is working with Corsi on finding both replacements and possible new officers. Corsi said he plans to promote officers from within the department to the rank of detective and that selections should be presented to the Town Board at its next meeting.
"The detective positions are critical because we're pretty lean as it is," Corsi said of his 42-officer force.
Corsi said although he is sad to see his detectives go and their experience will be a loss to the department, he wished them well and is confident his department will pick up where they left off.
"They were the best you could offer and officers of the highest caliber," he said.
