POTSDAM - Village trustees voted Monday to hire former Canton resident Peter G. LaSala as an officer in the Potsdam Police Department.
Mr. LaSala moved to Potsdam for the job. He previously spent five years as a security officer at St. Lawrence University, along with working part time at the Norfolk Police Department. He graduated from the police academy in 2011.
He will be paid an annual starting salary of $42,886.
Mr. LaSala will replace Michael J. Price, an officer who was let go during his probationary period after a closed-door village board meeting in March.
