New Windsor Police Lieutenant Daniel Valeri was one of 254 law enforcement officers who graduated from the FBI National Academy on June 9, 2022 in Quantico, Virginia. The 282nd session of the National Academy consisted of men and women from 47 states and the District of Columbia. The class included members of law enforcement agencies from 26 countries, four military organizations, and nine federal civilian organizations.
Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy offers 10 weeks of advanced communication, leadership, and fitness training. Participants must have proven records as professionals within their agencies to attend. On average, these officers have 21 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their
agencies to serve in executive-level positions. FBI Director Christopher Asher Wray delivered remarks at the ceremony. Class spokesperson Jimmy Johnson of the Amarillo Police Department represented the graduating officers. FBI Academy instructors, special agents, and other staff with advanced degrees provide the training; many instructors are recognized internationally in their fields. Since 1972, National Academy students have been able to earn undergraduate and graduate credits from the University of Virginia, which accredits many of the courses offered.
Town Supervisor Meyers commented, “The Town Board and I are very proud of Lt. Valeri and his accomplishment of graduating from the prestigious FBI National Academy”.
Lieutenant Valeri joined the New Windsor Police Department in 1997 after serving one year with the City of Newburgh Police.

He is a certified police instructor and a graduate of the Mid-Atlantic Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar (MALEEDS) held at Princeton University. Lieutenant Valeri has been the recipient of the department’s Meritorious Police Duty Award, Excellent Police Duty Award, and was the 2005 Officer of the Year.

On June 13, 2022, the New Windsor Police Department conducted an undercover criminal investigation at the A & A Spa, located at 357 Windsor Highway, after receiving a complaint from a customer that prostitution was occurring inside the business. During the investigation, an undercover Police Officer was offered sexual conduct in return for a fee by an employee of the spa.
The arrested employee was: Ms. Suwan Yang, 56 years old of Flushing, NY. Ms. Yang was charged with Prostitution (Penal Law 230.00 – B Misdemeanor). She was issued an appearance ticket to appear on June 28, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. for arraignment at the Town of New Windsor Justice Court.
Police Chief Robert Doss noted, “I anticipate additional undercover operations and inspections of these types of massage parlors and spas very soon. Consider this fair warning to those who operate these types of illicit businesses and to those individuals who visit them. We will not tolerate this type of activity in this town.”
Town Supervisor George Meyers stated, “The fact that this is occurring across the road from one of our local schools is troubling to me. Any future arrests will include the names and addresses of those involved in this illegal activity.”

On Thursday, June 9, 2022, the New Windsor Police Department conducted an underage alcohol sale enforcement detail at 23 businesses in town that are licensed to sell alcoholic beverages.
The below businesses and associated employees did sell alcoholic beverages to an underage person during this detail:
1. QuickChek – 170 Windsor Hwy. – Fabrizio A. Rimac, 18 years old of Newburgh, NY.
2. Preet Liquors – 1035 Little Britain Road – Ms. Teresita P. Garcia, 70 years old of New Windsor, NY.
3. Citgo Food Mart – 1069 Little Britain Road – Mr. Lalith S. Udamadura, 56 years old of New Windsor, NY.
4. Wine O’Clock Liquor Store – 436 Blooming Grove Tpk. – Ms. Sanghee Sayed, 64 years old of Newburgh, NY.
Each employee was charged with Unlawfully Dealing with a Child in the First Degree (Penal Law 260.20-2) – a class AMisdemeanor. All four employees were processed and released on an appearance ticket to appear back in Town court on 6/28/2022.
The Police Department will also send a written violation notice to the New York State Liquor Authority for each business involved. The businesses will then face a hearing with the New York State Liquor Authority for the violations and a severe penalty can be imposed upon the businesses themselves.
Police Chief Robert Doss commented, “The sale of alcoholic beverages to a minor is one of the most serious violations of the Alcohol Beverage Control Law. It should be known that in the weeks prior to conducting this detail, we first visited each of these 23 locations to discuss the seriousness of underage alcohol sales and we warned them that we would be planning enforcement details in the upcoming weeks. These four businesses clearly did not heed our warnings. I can ensure the community that further enforcement efforts will take place in the very near future.”
