Carnegie Police Sgt. Jeffrey Kennedy was officially appointed police chief at a special Carnegie Council meeting on Monday night.

Kennedy replaces Chief Jeffrey Harbin, whose retirement takes effect Aug. 9. Kennedy will serve as interim chief until then.

Council President Rick D'Loss called it the beginning of a “new era,” and Mayor Jack Kobistek praised Harbin for his 37 years of service.

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, county Councilman Mike Finnerty and representatives for state Sen. Wayne Fontana and Rep. Nick Codik presented Harbin with certificates of appreciation.
