Brecksville Police Chief is Retiring

Richard Mannarino to leave post after a year and a half


Brecksville Police Chief Richard Mannarino is retiring from the police force, Cleveland.com is reporting.

Mannarino, a Brecksville police officer for 34 years, took the place of Dennis A. Kancler, who retired in January 2011.

He has served as chief since April 5, 2011.

Captain Michael J. Carlin, who served as interim chief after Kancler left and was also a candidate for chief at that time, is expected to be appointed Brecksville's next police chief.

Mannarino's decision was not a surprise because he was enrolled in the Ohio Police and Fire Pension Fund’s Deferred Retirement Option Plan (DROP).

The program allows experienced officers to accumulate retirement money, but imposes a retirement deadline if they don't want to lose it.

Congratulations to Chief Mannarino on his retirement . I'll always remember him as the wonderful rookie who attended the scene of an accident I was involved in back in 1979 where a drunk driver ran the light at the 21/82 intersection and hit me. Sometimes seems like yesterday ... Best wishes!
