Brighton Police Chief Mark Henderson has decided not to retire, after a “tremendous outpouring of support” from the community.
Henderson originally announced his retirement on December 29, 2016, but says he has since heard from many residents, area leaders, and community members expressing a desire for him to stay.
“I feel honored and privileged to continue to serve the residents of Brighton and lead the men and woman of the Brighton Police Department,” said Henderson. “I am humbled and truly appreciative of everyone who contacted me since hearing of my forthcoming retirement plans, expressing their desire that I reconsider.”
Brighton Supervisor William Moehle and the members of the Brighton Town Board say they were thrilled with Chief Henderson’s decision to stay.
“It speaks volumes to the level of dedication and commitment Police Chief Henderson has for this community,” Moehle said. “We couldn’t be happier.”
