As mayor, Passero said he would set a goal of hiring at least six new police officers each year until the department reaches the mandated level of 80 officer and would not meddle in the department’s business.

“It pains me to see what has happened to our police department under the current administration,” Passero said. “Our dedicated officers on the city’s streets are keeping us safe. They need and deserve a professional management structure free from political interference.”
