WHITE PLAINS, NY – August 5, 2018 — Over two dozen applicants were interviewed to serve as Westchester County Public Safety Commissioner, including the maligned Yonkers Police Chief John Mueller who thankfully did not make the grade. Commissioner Gleason previously served as County Police Inspector.
Commissioner Gleason advised, “As a member of this great department for more than 35 years. I think my appointment sends a message to all the men and women of the department, whether it’s the newest rookie or the most senior veteran officer on the job, that they can aspire to lead this great department.”
Former Mount Vernon Police Commissioner and Chief of Investigation for the Office of the Westchester County District Attorney Terrance Raynor was sworn in as Westchester County Public Safety Deputy Commissioner.
The appointments are the most recent appointments by Westchester County Executive George Latimer.
