Joe DeCarlo was sworn into office as Greenburgh’s new Police Chief at the Town Board meeting earlier this week. The new Chief replaces John Kapica who will retire from the Police Department this weekend. Chief Kapica gave the town two years notice to ensure a smooth transition. We are grateful to the outgoing chief for his years of service and welcome Chief DeCarlo to his new leadership position. Joseph DeCarlo was appointed to the Police Department in 1977. He was one of the first members of the department to be certified as a Police Paramedic. He has served as a Detective, Sergeant and Lieutenant & Captain. He was the departments' Special Investigations officer and also commanded the department's patrol division. Chief DeCarlo has also commanded the department's Detective division and is the Accreditation Manager. He has worked with the Juvenile Aid Unit and the Greenburgh Drug Task Force. He was largely responsible for the department twice receiving state accreditation. Chief DeCarlo ranked first in Westchester County on 1996 competitive civil service examination for the rank of Captain. He resides in Hastings on Hudson and attended Woodlands High School. He received his BS from Mercy College in Sociology. We will be holding meetings around the town in the coming months to introduce Chief DeCarlo to the community and to discuss his vision for the police department with residents.

It is with regret that I have to inform you of the passing of long-time Town employee and resident James (Jim) Roberts.
James started working for the Greenburgh Nutrition Program in 1984 at the age of 63. This followed his service to the United States Army, retirement from General Motors and the passing of his wife. He continued to work for the Town delivering meals to seniors for the next 25 years, only stopping due to illness earlier this year at the age of 87. During his tenure with the Town he delivered over 210,000 meals. These meals were delivered in every imaginable type of weather…rain, snow, cold. Just like the mailman. Many times his face was the only one that a senior would see for days at a time. Even after he became older than many of the meal recipients, James continued to work every morning showing all of his co-workers the cheer and good spirit that drove him.
