2/22/2013 - Niagara Falls, N.Y. -- Family
friends and even Members of the area's block club gathered at the city
hall along with members of the Niagara Falls Police Department (NFPD) to
promote one of our 107th security force troops. Ronnie Cirrito was
promoted to grade of lieutenant today. He has been with the department
since 1990. "Ron is very professional and constantly displays
supervisory and leadership skills", said Brian Dalporto, Superintendent,
NFPD. "He is working in the community every single day to keep people
safe. Road patrol officers are the backbone of our police force and we
are happy to promote him."
With this promotion comes greater responsibility for Lieutenant Cirrito,
but he's ready for the challenge. "It's always good to keep moving
forward and to know that my hard work is paying off", said Cirrito.
"It's another step in the career ladder and I am eager to help out
younger officers to move toward this point in their career also."
Ronnie is known as Master Sgt Cirrito for the 107th Airlift Wing's
Security Forces Squadron at Niagara Falls Air Force Base. He has been
serving the state of New York and his country for more than 28 years.
"Ron possesses skills and character traits that cross over from his
military experience", said Niagara Falls Mayor, Paul Dyster. "His
military training is so valuable to our force and we couldn't ask for
more. He is truly dedicated to the city."
