The Village of Montgomery and Town of Mount Hope must stop using in-house police ranks and start hiring police supervisors from a competitive list. Orange County has decided not to certify its payroll if they do not comply with Civil Service Law. After a local paper identified village officers as chiefs and sergeants, the Personnel Commissioner began investigating the county’s use of police titles and their non-compliance with state Civil Service Law. The new Commissioner feels that the departments need a supervisor who holds a rank of sergeant or higher and that a police officer should not be filling a supervisory rank. The Village of Montgomery is currently interviewing candidates for a part-time police chief and an additional supervisor.
