A sergeant in the Carnegie Police Department is expected to be named the community's new police chief.

Sgt. Jeffrey Kennedy, 52, was one of three Carnegie sergeants to interview for the position on June 11 during a closed council meeting. Current police Chief Jeffrey Harbin will retire at the end of the summer, though his last working day is June 28.

Council voted 6-0 last week to recommend that Kennedy take a noncompetitive civil service test for the job of chief.

Once Kennedy passes the test, borough officials can offer him the position. Kennedy has been on the force for 26 years.

Harbin, 59, joined the Car-negie police department in 1976 and was named chief in 1992.

He also has served as borough manager since 2011. His retirement takes effect Aug. 9, and he is moving to North Carolina.
