First off, let me just say that Salerno is a large bag of douche. I can't stand Loser Boy and neither could any of his "co-workers" in Albany. He was never an Investigator when he retired from there. He was a DESK COP assigned to the traffic safety division of the Albany Police Department. He was lucky if he was allowed to touch a police car after the b.s. he pulled while letting his K9 lose into a crowd.... there are a lot of other issues but that’s another topic...
As for the title of Public Safety Commissioner, that is an appointed position, not a civil service position. It was created specifically for Retired Commissioner Robert Coleman (another douche bag). It was created because according to DCJS, Coleman's police certification expired in 1998. Therefore, he can not be in a police position, which he wasn't. He simply ran the administrative end of the PD such as, scheduling and budget. As for Salerno being appointed as Commissioner as opposed to Chief, the title of Commissioner can be filled by anybody the board appoints. If they are certified cops, which Salerno is, then it becomes a police position, if you’re not like Coleman, then it becomes a civilian position. The Chiefs title comes along with a lot more protection such as the International Association of Police Chief’s, and civil service protection. The original plan was to appoint a police chief. It originally was going to be Schoharie Police Chief Harold Orelupp who was recommended to the job by Retired Chief George Pratt. But then, Salerno allegedly donated a whole boat load of money to the Gay Rights Groups, which sat very well with the current Mayor.(Not that there is anything wrong with that)…. The board just decided to keep the “Commissioner” position because they can hire or fire the Commissioner at anytime. But be advised Village Board: Salerno is running around at political fundraisers in Schenectady county telling people he doesn’t even know that he is “in the running to be the next Chief of Albany Police” HAHA What a joke! That will never happen!
What about using an unmarked police car as your personal vehicle the taxpayers are getting a great deal with this guy, numerous complaints yet he still has a job,what does he have on the mayor?

Hahaha! I have NEVER been on the wrong side of the law! And the fact that you even say that I'm jealous of Salerno (of all people) is crazy in itself. I could care less about what he has and what he doesn't. The best part is that Tony can't pin-point the people that are posting on this site because he has screwed over so many of them to get where he is. Well my friend, you meet the same people on the way up as you do on the way down.......

Well Tim, He never passed any test to be a cop in Altamont. They are all part time and are hired through a very political process. You only work there if you know someone. You do not work there because you are the most qualified. Let me remind you that the Commissioner who has no legal rights to be in an Police car and is a civilian never made it past the rank of patrolman. NEVER. HE was a plain old cop with no supervisor skills. But yet he is your Commissioner. Pat has always caused a lot of trouble. Glad to see you opening your eyes now.
PS... Why does Salerno need a car to take home to Albany. Are you kidding......

Look at his latest hire. Another example of how things really work. Why is the public safety commisiioner driving a police car and wearing a uniform. He is a civilian not a police officer....
Helwig was later criticized in an internal audit by Capital OTB for improper payroll practices, including allegations he signed off on sick time for his son Jason, who worked for his father at Capital OTB, for days the younger Helwig also worked for his father as a Coxsackie police officer.

Hey hey. What a day. I woke up and could breathe a fresh breath of air. Seeing that SALERNO will be leaving made me think how great small town politics are... I would like to thank the village board for making this a civil service position. Now they can all see why Salerno was only a Patrolmen for 20 years..

1. Police Officer
2. Public Safety Commissioner
3. "Wanna-be Alabny Police Chief" (Not a Chance!!!)
4. "Team Leader"
5. Civilian

Sounds like a loser.....

Good Luck......
