Harrison swears in new police chiefPosted: Updated:
Harrison welcomed its new police chief to the force Monday.
Mayor Ron Belmont swore in Joseph Yasinki as the new police chief at Town Hall.
Yasinki replaces former Chief Michael Olsey, who resigned in February amid allegations of sexual harassment, nepotism and favoritism.
An internal investigation by the town's law department found Olsey did not break the law or the town's harassment policy.
A 20-year veteran of the Westchester County Police, Yasinki says he's ready to get to work.
"I look forward to getting to know the men and women of the police department in the days and weeks ahead," says Yasinki. "Together, we will continue to provide excellent police service that the people of Harrison deserve and expect."
Yasinki also says he's looking forward to getting to know the residents and business owners of Harrison and hearing their ideas and concerns.
Harrison's new police chief also spent more than a decade supervising special investigations in the private sector.
