NY town's top cops quit over budget cuts

Deputy chief and chief of 31 years stepped down after $400,000 was cut from the Auburn police budget

By Maren Guse

AUBURN, N.Y. — Auburn’s Chief of Police Gary Giannotta and Deputy Police Chief Thomas Murphy both announced their retirement Monday afternoon.

The announcement comes after $400,000 was cut from the budget. Giannotta said in a release that he has been employed by the City of Auburn for 31 years and has been Auburn’s Police Chief for the past 16 years.

In the release, Giannotta wrote in part: "With the imminent passage of the upcoming budget, I find that I cannot support the changes that the City Council is proposing to put into place. It is my belief that they are detrimental to the safety and operation of the not only the Police department but the Citizens of Auburn."
