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