Use of police vehicles

As a citizen of the village of Massena, I am concerned about my tax dollars and their usage. I have seen local village police of Massena use their vehicles for private use. This includes vehicles parked at what appears to be private residences as well as for personal uses such as transporting family, as well as for the officers to attend personal family events around the area. I understand that we are a community, but these vehicles should be for official business only. I only ask about this because those are tax dollars are at work for something that personally benefits the officers themselves, and not the community at large. I expect a backlash, and for the officers to get upset because they are being called out on this, but ultimately I ask that they stop this practice.
