Former Rye Public Safety Commissioner Michael Corcoran, who resigned from his Rye position in June, has landed a new position in Morristown, New Jersey as its first civilian public safety director:
"A retired West Orange deputy police chief and former police commissioner for Rye, New York, is expected to be appointed Morristown's first civilian public safety director.
Mayor Timothy Dougherty is expected to appoint Michael Corcoran, 52, to the job that will pay between $100,000 and $150,000 annually at Tuesday's council meeting. The appointment, if approved by the council, will run through the duration of the mayor's term which expires Dec. 31, 2021.
The appointment is listed as a resolution on the council's agenda. Dougherty and town Administrator Jillian Barrick said further information would be released after the appointment. If approved, Corcoran would start Oct. 1.
The public safety director will oversee policies, procedures and discipline over the town's bureaus of police and fire and office of emergency management.
The council in June approved creation of a public safety department and director, less than a month after a Morris County civil jury awarded Morristown Officer Keith Hudson $1.7 million in compensatory and punitive damages."
