YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — Following the announcement of York City Police Commissioner Osborne Robinson’s resignation, the city has named an interim chief of police.
Mayor Michael Helfrich made the announcement Wednesday that Cpt. Daniel Aikey will be taking Robinson’s role for the immediate present.
Aikey has been at the department since January, 1994.
During his service to the city, he rose through the ranks of Corporal, Sergeant, and Lieutenant and was most recently promoted to Captain in December, 2019. Aikey has served as a supervisor within both the Patrol and Investigative Services Division.
“I truly enjoyed working side-by-side with Commissioner Robinson during some very difficult times for York and for our country.” said Mayor Michael Helfrich in a release. “I have gotten to know Acting Chief Aikey much better since he became a captain, and I look forward to working closely with him and the entire police command staff as we prepare for a new chapter for the York City Police Department.”
Aikey resides in Manchester Township with his wife and two children.
The city says it is continuing its active search for York’s next leader of the police department.
