TOWN OF LOCKPORT — Four men and three women are newly graduated from the Niagara County Auxiliary Police Academy.

The graduates, Niagara County Auxiliary Police Officers Tracy Cain, Christopher Derrick, Stephanie Evans, Joseph Falsone, Rhonda Liuzzi, Kenneth McDonald, and Roselio Rodriguez were honored Wednesday night in a ceremony at the Niagara County Public Safety and Training Facility, where NCAP Chief Bryan Barish referred to them as “one of the most outgoing and cohesive group of recruits he has taught in the last 20 years.”

The seven who graduated underwent 104 hours of extensive training in a variety of police-related topics such as traffic control, use of force, first aid, tactical communications, report writing, ethics, patrol procedures, radio communications, crowd control and defensive tactics. This fall after completing their field training segment, these dedicated officers will complete another 115 hour New York State Peace Officer Certification at the Niagara County Law Enforcement Academy followed by regular in-service training.

The Niagara County Auxiliary Police Departments primary mission is to be prepared for manmade, civil and natural disasters (such as 9/11 or a major weather event such as a major snow and ice storm or power grid outage) but are regularly called upon throughout the year to maintain peace and order at various events and festivals and help control traffic at major events, freeing up the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office and other local law enforcement to focus on their core law enforcement initiatives as training. Auxiliary Police officers are carefully chosen civic minded citizens who serve on a volunteer basis.
