Pittsburgh‘s new police chief is from the Midwest, but has plenty of ties to the community.
McLay, whose family is from Squirrel Hill and Wilkinsburg and who spent three years living in Mt. Lebanon as a youth, fills a void left by Nate Harper. Harper is serving 18 months in prison after pleading guilty in October to taking city money and failing to file income tax returns.
He is expected to begin work Sept. 15 and take over for acting Chief Regina McDonald.
