White Plains' David E. Chong. Soon-to-be Police Commissioner of Mount Vernon.
I just wanted to thank you and all the wonderful people in the great city of White Plains for all the support that you all have shown me. The Honorable Mayor Ernest D. Davis has given me an opportunity to lead the Mount Vernon Police Department and I have accepted.
Let me say that it was indeed my honor and pleasure to serve the citizens and residents of the City of White Plains as a Deputy Public Safety Commissioner. The men and women of the Police, Fire, PSA's and Metro Care Bureau's are so very dedicated to their professions and it was their excellence and care for the public that made my tenure truly enjoyable and successful.
I thank Mayor Delfino, members of the Common Council, and the City Staff for their support during my tenure and their continued friendship. I thank Commissioner Straub for his congratulations and look forward to working with the White Plains Department of Public Safety on law enforcement and safety issues of mutual concern in the future.
