Solomon Resigns as Newburgh Police Chief

Former Beacon chief out after two years

Doug Solomon, who served as Beacon’s police chief from 2012 to 2017 before taking the same position in Newburgh, resigned on April 30.

Solomon had been suspended by the city on April 1 and Lt. Kevin Lahar was named officer-in-charge. The city declined to provide any reason for the suspension except to say it was related “directly to his performance as chief.”
