NORTH CASTLE, N.Y. – After serving 26 years with the North Castle Police Department and working his way up through the ranks, the Town Board has appointed Lt. Geoffrey Harisch as police chief.
“I’m looking forward to serving this town,” Harisch said following the announcement at a recent Town Board meeting, adding that he intends to do his best in the new role.
Earlier this year, Lt. William Fisher was named provisional police chief in January after the retirement of longtime chief Robert D’Angelo. Fisher will now return to his role as lieutenant, according to a report in The Examiner News.
Harisch's top police role was set to become effective Aug. 10, according to the North Castle Town Board's unanimous vote.
Notably, during the same meeting, Aug. 14, the town board also appointed Harisch’s younger brother, Matt Harisch of the North Castle Highway Department, as lead mechanic. His new role became effective Aug. 19.
