I have known Tim Coll professionally for approximately the past 18 years. I had two opportunities to work with Tim while he was assigned to the FBI Albany Field Office and I was serving as a Captain in the Troy P.D.
His expertise and diligence in performing his duties were consistent and always of the highest professional standards. Not only as a Case Agent, but also as a Supervisor. He exhibited the rare yet vital combination of the qualities of competence and character.
Tim is a true believer and proactive of inter-agency cooperation. His style of leadership and management served Troy PD well as a force multiplier.
I can recommend, without any reservation, Tim Coll for the position of Public Safety Commissioner. I have no doubt that he will be an outstanding addition to your Public Safety Teams. Tim has given admiration to the motto of Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity and will serve as an example for the members he will lead. His low key, calm demeaner is a perfect fit for such a high-profile position.
