A Civil Service exam for people interested in becoming the city’s police chief is scheduled for St. Patrick’s Day.
However, the man who has the job now said he has no immediate plans to retire.
“I could have retired two years ago,” Jeff Trickler wrote in an email to the Times Thursday. “It has been in the back of my mind since the beginning of last year, but I have no plans to at this time.
“I just thought it would be a good idea to have a valid list (of candidates) in case the time comes when I make a decision, the city would be ahead of the process.”
Trickler, a 22-year veteran of the Geneva Police Department, was named the city’s 13th police chief in 2011. He succeeded Frank Pane, who retired after 22 years in charge and 45 overall in the department.
