ARMONK, N.Y. – Police Chief Robert D’Angelo is stepping down after 40 years with the North Castle Police Department. D'Angelo, who was 21 when he joined the department, will resign Jan. 11 under a recent agreement with Town Administrator Joan Goldberg.
D’Angelo, 61, will be leaving on his own terms. He has served as chief for 21 years.
“This is completely my decision. It’s just time,” said D’Angelo. “I’ve got grandkids to play with.”
While the North Castle Town Board has yet to decide on D’Angelo’s replacement, it is believed they will promote one of the department's three lieutenants: William Fisher, Peter Simonsen and Geoffrey Harisch. Because the town needs to trim $154,000 in salaries from the 2013 budget, whichever lieutenant is promoted will not be replaced.
Further details on D’Angelo’s resignation and replacement will be discussed at the next North Castle Town Board meeting Wednesday, Jan. 9.
