Syracuse's new police chief said Monday that he's ready to get to work. Kenton Buckner, who previously served as chief of police in Little Rock, Arkansas, was sworn in as Syracuse's chief Monday morning.
Buckner was visibly emotional as he spoke to a packed lobby in the Public Safety Building downtown Syracuse.
"I’m very thankful for the city of Syracuse for selecting me," Buckner said. "As you can see, law enforcement, if I were to give you something that you would be able to qualify what it means to me, I would liken it to your wife and kids.”
