Yonkers police chief announces resignation

Yonkers Police Commissioner Edmund Hartnett has announced his resignation after serving as the city's highest-ranking police officer since 2006. Hartnett says he will step down at the end of the year, with his decision coinciding with incumbent Mayor Phil Amicone's final day before Mayor-elect Mike Spano takes office. Spano had criticized Hartnett for allegedly providing excessive overtime pay to several officers, but the police chief says he is not being forced from his position. Hartnett says he plans on working with the new administration to ensure a smooth transition for the city's next commissioner.
