He can be paged out to blackouts, flipped-over gas tanks, closed roads, downed power lines, or dangerous weather conditions. Meller is the commanding officer for the Syosset Auxiliary Police, the all-civilian volunteer unit operating out of the police department's Community Safety Unit since 1951.

SWAT Continues Undefeated Season, Now 3-0
On Saturday, July 23, the Syosset Woodbury Aquatic Team (S.W.A.T) continued its season with a home meet against Parkwood of Great Neck. S.W.A.T., which is a swim team composed of kids ages 6-16 from the Syosset area, competes mainly for fun, in Division IV of the Nassau Municipal Swim Conference (NMSC). For more than 30 years the teams of the NMSC have served as fun, competition and a great way to cool off for kids ages 6-16 throughout Nassau County. In the first week of the season back on July 9, Syosset edged out a home win against rival Wantagh by a score of 160-150. In the weekend that followed came another home meet for the kids, this one against Hempstead, which the S.W.A.T. also won to extend the team's record to 2-0 and continue a three-meet winning streak that dates back to last season.
