Rochester, N.Y., Police Chief La’Ron Singletary and senior members of his command staff announced their retirements from the force Tuesday amid criticism from city leaders of the handling of the police-involved death of Daniel Prude earlier this year. Singletary, 40, was appointed chief in April 2019 and leaves with 22 years of service. Deputy Chief Joseph Morabito, who oversees the department’s operations bureau, announced his retirement after nearly 34 years with the police force, WROC-TV reported. Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren addressed the news of the departures in a virtual briefing with the City Council.
