With nearly three dozen new Police Department hires since 2012, Public Safety Director Kirk Blouin said he needs a seasoned upper-level manager to help mentor employees with management potential.
That's why Blouin has convinced former Deputy Chief Dan Szarszewski to return for two years and help train future department leaders.

"He gets along with everyone," Blouin said at the ceremony held in the Town Council chambers filled with co-workers and family members of the honorees. "He's a very dedicated family man and is always talking about his children," Blouin said. "Joe has always been a winner," Blouin said. "It's a great example to some of the younger officers if you stay positive and come to work with a positive attitude good things happen," Blouin said. Blouin recognized four recent retirees: Capt.

Public Safety Director Kirk Blouin said he will never be in favor of decriminalizing charges for those found in possession of under 20 grams of marijuana. On Monday, the West Palm Beach City Commission unanimously gave preliminary approval to an ordinance that would give police the option to issue a $100 civil penalty rather than making an arrest. "Politicians should keep out of it and leave it to law-enforcement professionals rather than have a knee-jerk reaction that feels good in the community," Blouin said. Blouin says he doesn't see any advantage to the West Palm Beach ordinance because, under the law, police have discretion whether to confiscate the marijuana and not charge the person or charge the person and issue a notice to appear in court. Mike Edmondson, spokesman for State Attorney Dave Aronberg, said Blouin is correct. But Blouin has no plans to make that happen. A marijuana arrest doesn't prevent someone from going to college or getting a job, Blouin said. A person can become a police officer with a misdemeanor marijuana charge on his or her record, he said. "Lots of times, these small types of crime lead to solving larger crimes," he said.
Public Safety Director Kirk Blouin fired Derosa a month later after an internal investigation found that Derosa was "dishonest and made false and material misstatements in conjunction with a workers' compensation claim."
The boat will be delivered this week, said Public Safety Director Kirk Blouin.
