Brockport police chief retiring after 16 years
Brockport, N.Y. - Brockport police chief Daniel Varrenti, who's been with the department for 16 years, announced his retirement Wednesday.
That announcement was made on the department's Facebook page, where Varrenti thanked the community, his colleagues and others in a statement.
Varrenti began his career in law enforcement with Irondequoit's police department where he served 23 years, before retiring from that position in 2002.
He was then named chief of police in Brockport.
"During my 16 years in Brockport, I was again blessed with working with some of the most dedicated, professional, generous and kindest individuals I have ever met," read part of Varrenti's statement. "I firmly believe the future leadership of this department has been set in place for a number of years now and will take this department to the next level of professional policing."
His final day will be March 31, 2018.
