Pecora named to replace chief

Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012, 8:59 p.m.
 

Michael C. Pecora, 54, of Richland is Hampton's new acting chief of police.

Hampton Council unanimously appointed Pecora, a captain on the Hampton force, Nov. 28 to replace retiring chief Dan Connolly.

Connolly officially will retire Dec. 31 but vacated his office on Nov. 21 to use five weeks of accumulated vacation time.

Pecora officially will become Hampton's new police chief in January.

A 1976 graduate of North Allegheny High School, Pecora has a bachelor's degree in business administration from La Roche College.

He is a single father with two children: Air Force Sgt. Joseph Pecora, 28, of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Amber Pecora, 22, who works in Chicago's public school system.
