Sgt. Brian Finnerty, an 18-year veteran of the force, was named as chief of the Pleasant Hills police department in a council vote Monday.

He replaces Edward Cunningham, who is retiring this month with 37 years of service, the past six as chief.

Finnerty previously worked as a police officer in Wilkinsburg and Braddock Hills.

Council named Lt. Sean Greene, a 15-year veteran of the department, as deputy chief.

Finnerty and Greene were sworn in Monday night. The appointments are effective Jan. 1.

Mayor Warren Bourgeois is retiring at the end of the year. At 82, he has served four terms on council and four terms as mayor, for a total of 32 years in borough government.
