Dear Lancaster Village Residents,

We are in unchartered waters in dealing with the COVID-19 crisis that the world is facing. I want to assure our residents that this situation has been closely monitored and that your Village government is taking all the necessary steps and precautions that we can so that we as a community can get through this safely.

Our Office of Emergency Management Director Scott Kuhlmey has been in constant contact with the Erie County Department of Emergency Services who is the lead agency with this situation. There are several steps that you can take to minimize risk and exposure and they can be found on our OEM web and social media pages. I highly suggest that you take the time to read and follow these recommendations and together, we will make it through this difficult time.

We are constantly receiving updates from Erie County and will keep you as informed as possible. We have cancelled all meetings of social groups using the Municipal Building until further notice and will most likely cancel our Village Board meeting on March 23rd.

Please check our website and social media pages regularly for updates and further recommendations. Working together, we will get through this crisis.

Yours very truly,

William C. Schroeder

Yesterday, I met with Lancaster Police Department Chief William J. Karn, Jr. and Det. Lt. Ronald Rozler to see the new automated external defibrillators that the department purchased with $10,000 in state funds that I secured. This funding will allow the department to equip every patrol vehicle with a state-of-the-art AED unit, an AED bag and a trauma kit, consisting of bandages, a CPR mask, and a tourniquet.
In a medical emergency, every second counts. Iโ€™m proud to have secured this funding to help ensure Lancaster residents receive immediate lifesaving care if they suffer a severe medical emergency.
We also discussed various issues that affect the Lancaster Police Department and how I can use my voice in Albany to help these brave officers who risk their lives every day to keep our community safe.

We would like to congratulate Lieutenant Kenneth Rusin on his retirement today after 39 years of dedicated service to the Town of Cheektowaga! Lieutenant Ken Rusin began his career with the Cheektowaga Police Department in August of 1980
Upon completion of the Police Academy and for the next 14 years, Ken served as a road patrol officer on the 1st and 3rd platoon. As a patrolman, Ken was also a Field Training Officer, member of the motorcycle unit, defensive tactics instructor, and the Warrant Handling and Management Officer.
In October of 1994, Ken was promoted to the position of Sergeant. Kenโ€™s first assignment was Headquarters Sergeant on the 2nd Platoon. In 1997, Ken applied for and was assigned as Supervisor of the Juvenile Unit. In that position, Ken help initiate the Wednesday in the Park Program which brought over 200 youths together with police in recreational activities creating a setting that enabled police to interact with youths in a positive manner and creating lasting relationships. A restructuring of the Police Department in 1999 led to Kenโ€™s assignment as Patrol Sergeant on the 2nd Platoon where he spent the next 10 years of his career. In December of 2009, Ken was promoted to the position of Lieutenant and was assigned as Headquarters Lieutenant. In February of 2011, Ken requested and was assigned Detective Lieutenant, working both the day shift and the afternoon shift in the general Bureau. In this capacity, Ken supervised shift detectives, the Sex Offense Squad, and managed major cases to include numerous homicide investigations. A very demanding position meant being on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, numerous phone calls in the middle of the night even when on vacation. Ken never failed to answer his phone when being called and never complained about interrupted sleep or time off. Kenโ€™s highly decorated career included numerous medals and letters of commendation and appreciation for going above and beyond, to include:
o Chiefโ€™s Medal of Valor for his actions during a hostage situation in April of 1990 which involved two persons being held by a man armed with a shotgun.
o Three Distinguished Conduct Awards for his actions at a scene of a shooting, performing CPR and reviving a victim of a motorcycle accident, and the arrest of a distraught male threatening his family.
o Three Special Unit Citations and Five Letters of Commendation

Congratulations and good luck Lt Rusin! Your CPD family all hope you have an enjoyable, relaxing, and long retirement.
