TOWN OF NEWBURGH – Police Chief Michael Clancy is retiring next month, after more than 35 years in the department.

“Clancy has done an excellent job,” Newburgh Town Supervisor Gil Piaquadio said. “It’s going to be a difficult to replace him.”

Deputy Chief Donald B. Campbell will replace Clancy on an interim basis, Piaquadio said. It might take a few months before a permanent police chief is hired, as interviews will be conducted for the position, he said.

Clancy spent about five years with the City of Newburgh Police Department before he joined the town in 1979, according to Piaquadio. Clancy was promoted to chief in 2012. He was previously a lieutenant.

A call to Clancy’s office wasn’t immediately returned.

“Clancy has the right attitude as an administrator,” Piaquadio said. “He deals with everyone very fairly.”
