HARRISON, N.Y. -- The sudden suspension of Harrison's former Police Chief Anthony Marraccini three weeks ago was tied to him being paid for some 1,000 hours of time off he wasn’t supposed to receive, according to a report by lohud.com.
Marraccini who retired Thursday, denies any wrongdoing, but a town probe centers on discrepancies between the city's official time sheets and the detailed records of time off kept by Marraccini, said lohud.com.
Chief since 2010, Marraccini took more than a 1,000 hours of accrued time off, while at the same time he was listed as being at work on the official time sheets used for payroll, added lohud.com.
Marraccini has worked for the Harrison Police Department since 1984 . He was paid $185,000 annually and received a $12,000 stipend for having no captain in the department at the time he resigned.
Town officials have not commented on how they plan to move forward and whether they will continue the investigation now that Marraccini has retired or pay him the money he says he is owed, said lohud.com
