Niagara Falls has rejoined the Niagara County Drug Task Force, after years of not being part of the countywide effort.

Next week, Bryan DalPorto will replace the retiring John Chella as Niagara Falls Police superintendent. DalPorto has been a major with the Air National Guard and a detective lieutenant with the department.

A man who has served the Niagara Falls Police Department for more than 40 years is retiring.

Superintendent John R. Chella will be leaving his post at the end of the month. Chella, 63, intended to retire last year, but contractual issues regarding retirement benefits forced him to maintain his post. His career began 42 years ago as a cop with a street beat. He worked his way up the ranks until becoming Superintendent 9 years ago.

A successor to the post has yet to be named.

 The discovery comes two days after state police said a headless torso found near the base of Niagara Falls was the body of the missing mother.
