WOODBURY - Suffolk County Acting Police Commissioner Edward Webber was nominated to stay in his position full-time at a press conference today. Webber has held the temporary position since County Executive Steve Bellone (D-Suffolk) took office in January. Before Bellone himself was sworn in, he called the police department "demoralized" and "dysfunctional." Today, he gave Webber the credit for turning the department around in his time as the top cop so far. Bellone says Webber has more than 40 years experience and is the longest-serving chief in the history of the Suffolk County Police Department. Besides Webber's police experience, he's also a certified public accountant, skills that may come in handy given the county's huge budget deficit. The County Legislature still must vote on the nomination.
