Syracuse, N.Y. - Syracuse’s new police chief has a lot of work to do, to keep his job.
Chief Kenton Buckner needs to complete nearly 400 hours of training in order to be certified as a cop in New York. He is required to pass in four areas including physical fitness and fire arm use.
The police union, which has not seen eye to eye with Buckner since his arrival, doesn't believe the Chief will pass.
Buckner has until Dec 1st to complete the training.
Mayor Ben Walsh has appointed Buckner chief on a provisional basis allowing him to carry a gun and badge and fulfill all the duties of a city cop.
