Now we have lost the best cop on our force. What now? Things do not get done as it is. They can get some ideas from the Herkimer police on how to get these drug dealers off of our streets.

Definitely going to be losing one of the better officers on this one. So now we've lost a veteran in Beach and are going to lose Petrie as well, dept going down hill and fast. Only thing I could possibly think now is maybe doing away with the police department and letting the state police take over or merging with Herkimer or Dolgeville, granted neither will happen but it certainly should be considered.
Congrats to Petrie though, he's definitely earned the promotion. Very good officer and very professional.

It's not surprising Ron Petrie left for a job that pays less and has more headaches when you think about the list of officers that have flooded out of the place since Mike Masi took over as asst chief then chief. Off the top of my head there is
Kapusta
Getman
Monahan
Briggs
Beach
Manley
Maccammon
Crossett
Fox
Olson
Congdon
Wright
Leszynski
Bailey
Farber
Dean
Holt
Blowers
Dirhberg
and Petrie makes TWENTY and I'm sure I forgot some. Sounded like Petrie couldn't get out of lf fast enough. Hired thursday, started friday.
Nothing will get solved in lf now and all because Masi doesnt play well with others. Bring back Deluca. Above are 20 reasons why.

I believe that the house cleaning in Little Falls needs to start at city hall immediately. These officers are leaving for a reason and it appears it has little do due with money. Something going on down there and needs to be seriously looked at. Now I have had my run ins with Petrie and will state that even after everything, he was very professional and honest. He actually deserved a better position with us then what he had. He has helped me turn my life around since and is very positive and upbeat, you don't get that out of all the officers now a days. He will be certainly missed here on a lot of levels.

You can spell 'professionally' but not 'lowlife'. You can spell 'personally' but not 'truly'? Nice job at trying to cover up who you are. I'm pretty sure Mr. Beach is doing just fine even without your love. Jealousy will eat you alive. Work hard and maybe you won’t be chasing dogs or writing parking tickets for half your life and spending the other half complaining on topix about people who are more successful than you.

Thats 23 and still counting. Thats the entire department twice over. McDonalds holds onto employees better than that. When guys like Petrie leave for lower pay and a more demanding job you have to wonder who is to blame. At what point is the police and fire board going to ask what the hell is going on here?

Congratulations to Sgt Petrie. He will be a great Chief. For the record, you will note that many of the above officers named are good and honest Civil Servants. I have to say that Little Falls PD is a tremendous source of good officers. Part of the reason is that LFPD (especially Chief Masi) has been outstanding in hosting a local police academy, drawing up numerous officers for the area. No matter what some of the personal gripes are, Chief Masi is ethical, hard-working, and gives back to the community in many ways including the BSA. He has recognized many good officers and hired many of the same.

Best of luck to Sgt Petrie! LFPD and the City of Little Falls are the only ones getting the short end of the stick.

Congratulations to the Village of Frankfort for FINALLY making a good decision having to do with law enforcement.

Also,we are a brotherhood of blue. Let's work together protecting and supporting the community AND over selves. With all the scandals and bad press we have had during the last few years, it is time to come together and shine. And, let's be careful out there.
WELL SAID

THANK YOU... Thank You !
THAT is the kind of talk which makes me proud !

Although LF-TOPIX seems filled with complainers and detractors...
There is... at least... a voice of reason.

It is my hope...
that posters on TOPIX are NOT representative of LF residents.

Test smart?? I think he passed the Chief's test by 2 points. I don't think he's being nominated for a Rhodes Scholarship anytime soon.

Ya, well honestly I am suprised that he even passed it at all. I think that may have luck or maybe even help. Anyone that can tell a resident of Little Falls that there is NO POINT to fight something in court because the charge is to small (a violation) and it CAN NOT BE REDUCED needs some brush up on the law. Or maybe he is just so stupid that he thinks everyone else is AS stupid. Yup a violation is a minor charge but dont tell someone that they can not get out of it because of that. INNOCENT is innocent and the charges CAN BE DROPPED BY A JUDGE OR JURY. I didnt go to law school to learn that fact either.

Masi may be a idiot and a loser, but FYI

Dave Fox and Scott Olson RETIRED !!!! after putting in all the needed time and both work up at the county building for the sheriff's office scanning people as they come into the building.

Talk about a nice easy retirement job.

Oh yeah,, Greg Deluca got the same sweet gig as fox & olson.
