Not even retirement could stop this First Responder.

This First Responder this week has already put in enough time to retire as a New York State Corrections Officer

Meet Daniel Salce


Working as a Police Officer has some perks, one of which is early retirement. That hasn't stopped Dan from remaining an amazing First Responder though. While no longer a Corrections Officer, he is a Police Officer for both the Boonville Police Department and the Sherrill Police Department.

If juggling that sounds difficult, Dan does even more. He also takes the time to train young recruits to become great police officers as a teacher at a Central New York training facility.

Dan's nominator says he is selfless and genuinely cares about the cities he protects. They also said he symbolizes what it means to serve and protect. Congrats Dan!

Do you know a first responder that deserves to be recognized? Tell us about someone who should be honored in Central New York - a firefighter, police officer, EMT, forest ranger, paramedic, DEC officers, military, rescuers, front line workers, or any other person first on the scene.

Include their name, a picture, and why they should be recognized during 'First Responder Friday." We'll honor one first responder every Friday and as a way to say thank you, we'll give them an oil change from Jiffy Lube on Commercial Drive in New Hartford and a Bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes.
