Clark Police Chief Retires After 37 Years On The Force

CLARK – After 37 years of service as a member of the Clark Police Department, Chief Denis Connell is retiring, effective June 1, Clark Mayor Salvatore Bonaccorso announced this afternoon.

Lieutenant Alan Scherb has been promoted to the rank of provisional captain and will be designated as the officer-in-charge of the department, effective June 1, 2011. Members of the department were briefed at a general staff meeting this afternoon. Union County Prosecutor Theodore Romankow is providing assistance during the transition.
