Meeting was called to order at 7:30 pm. Upon roll call the following were present:

Jerry Welch, Chairman

Mark Burdett, Secretary

Scott Musillami, Commissioner

Also in attendance: Michael Ruth, Police Chief Richard Porcaro, Patrol Officer Candidate

The minutes of the March 8, 2011 meeting were approved.

The Patrol Officer Candidate, Richard Porcaro was provided with the conditional letter of employment. Mr. Porcaro will complete his psychological exam and the other required exams outlined in the letter. Mr. Porcaro was also provided with the reimbursement agreement. The candidate endorsed both agreements.

Chairman Welch complimented Chief Ruth and his investigators on the most thorough background checks received on the top two candidates on the Register of Eligibles. Chairman Welch went on to say that they were by far the most comprehensive background checks the Commission has ever received.

Chairman Welch received an invoice for $135 from Theodore Polygraph Services for the polygraph testing of Candidate Richard Porcaro. A motion was passed for payment of this invoice.

Candidate Porcaro has his psychological assessment scheduled for Wednesday, June 15, 2011. Staff will be directed to set up his pre-employment physical and POWER test. If Mr. Porcaro passes both tests, he will start the Police Academy on July 11, 2011.

Chief Ruth informed the Commission on a few new programs he has started in the Police Department:

  • Business Watch
  • Fleet Watch
  • Full Neighborhood Watch Program
  • Citizen’s Police Academy
  • Commissioner Musillami is waiting on his re-appointment from Mayor Krzeminski. Chairman Welch has discussed this with the Mayor and is awaiting his decision. It is the consensus of the Commission that it would be a benefit to re-appoint Commissioner Musillami.

The next regularly scheduled meeting will be held on September 13, 2011.

Chairman Welch asked for any additional business and hearing none asked for a motion to adjourn.

The meeting adjourned at 8:04 pm.
