The Town of Greenburgh has appointed a new chief of police to replace Joseph DeCarlo, who plans to retire in November.
Captain Chris McNerney is currently captain of the department's detective division and has held that title since 2009, according to Supervisor Paul Feiner. The Town Board has voted to elevate McNerney to the department's top position.
"He previously served as police lieutenant, commanding officer-special investigations unit. He has a JD degree from Pace University School of Law and a BS degree (Magna Cum Laude) from Mercy College. He is a former President of Ardsley Little League and has been involved in many community activities," according to Feiner.
The supervisor said of the appointment, "We are very grateful to Chief DeCarlo for his outstanding service as Police Chief during the past four years and his 36 years of service in law enforcement."
