Ithaca Police Chief Takes Indefinite Leave


Ithaca’s Acting Police Chief is taking an indefinite leave of absence.

John Joly told the Ithaca Voice he was taking an indefinite leave to focus on his personal wellness.

Joly and two other members of the Ithaca Police Department were cleared last week in an investigation by State Police into allegations of overtime fraud. Joly told the online newspaper there is not a clear timeline in place regarding if or when he will return from his leave.

Joly is also readying for a battle in court against the city over allegations that the city subjected him to a hostile work environment.
