"I appreciate and salute your commitment to public safety. I applaud your career decision to help keep our communities safe every day," Luciano said during the Jan. 7 ceremony at the Maloney Center for Staff and Training Development. "Thanks to collective bargaining, you have a voice in your workplace and at the State Capitol, where budget and funding decisions are made. Thanks to collective bargaining, there is safety and dignity and professionalism in your work."
