Remote dispatching would increase Tupper patrols

By DENISE A. RAYMOPress Republican Staff Writer

Emergency Services Director Ricky Provost said remote dispatching would take place only between 5 p.m. and 5 a.m. on each Friday, Saturday and Sunday — the times Police Chief Thomas Fee identified as needing the most personnel out on patrol.

Valesky (D-Oneida) and Assemblywoman RoAnn M. Destito (D/WF-Rome) sponsored legislation signed into law this week that will make financial resources available to communities to make their voices heard.
