Adjudged that the determination is confirmed and the proceeding is dismissed on the merits, with costs.

The determination is supported by substantial evidence (see, Matter of Stork Rest. v Boland, 282 N.Y. 256; Matter of Keogh v Dolce, 84 A.D.2d 579). Furthermore, the penalty of termination of the petitioner's employment was not so disproportionate to the offenses as to be shocking to one's sense of fairness (see, Matter of Pell v Board of Educ., 34 N.Y.2d 222). This is especially true in view of the fact that police departments are quasi-military organizations requiring strict discipline (see, Matter of Bal v Murphy, 55 A.D.2d 26, affd 43 N.Y.2d 762). Bracken, J.P., Balletta, Miller and Pizzuto, JJ., concur.
