Manlius, NY - After recent discussions between the Town Board and Chief of Police, we jointly announce the departure of Chief Michael J. Crowell. He has served the residents of Manlius for nearly 30 years, first as an officer and, since 2017, as chief of the police department. Chief Crowell leaves behind a nationally accredited department that is committed to public safety. We thank him for his many years of excellent public service and wish him well in his future endeavors.
The Town of Manlius Police Department senior police captain will be assuming the duties and responsibilities of the Chief of Police until the Town of Manlius has appointed an interim police chief. The Town Board is confident in our command staff to lead TMPD and continue providing outstanding service to Town of Manlius residents. The Board is currently in discussions to appoint an interim Chief and has plans to announce next steps shortly.
