Reflections for Superintendent Wayne E. Bennett

My deepest and most heartfelt condolences to the entire Bennett family. Superintendent Bennett was truly devoted to the New York State Police, and to serving the people of the State of New York. He was also dedicated to making the New York State Police the best Law Enforcement agency in our great country by instituting proactive training programs, education, accreditation, certifications to name a few examples. Superintendent Bennett was also a big believer in accountability and having a strong and structured Internal Affairs program. On a personal note, Superintendent Wayne E. Bennett was a friend and a person I admired for his dedication and devotion to serving the people of New York State, and to serving Division of New York State Police.
May his soul forever rest peacefully in Heaven.
