CHITTENANGO, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Village of Chittenango now has a new Police Chief.
On Tuesday, the Chittenango Village Board approved a contract hiring Fred Corey as the village's new Chief of Police.
An officer for 24 years before retiring, the Board states that Corey rose through the ranks to Lieutenant with the Onondaga County Sheriff's Office as well as a Sergeant with the Town of Clay Police Department.
The Board touts Corey's experience managing personnel as well as a wide variety of policing activities and state he looks forward to working with the Village of Chittenango and its community.
The previous Police Chief, Jeffrey Paul, retired from his position following a year-long investigation where authorities claim Paul submitted time sheets as both the Police Chief and as a Deputy with the Madison County Sheriff's Office. Authorities said that was while working at his personal business of The Paul Funeral Home and that the time submitted overlapped multiple times. He was also relieved of his duties as a deputy of the Sheriff's Office at that time.
