Steve McCarthy just got himself some job security.
For the first time in borough history, the Red Bank council entered into a contract with its police chief, locking up McCarthy for the next five years.
“It protects the individual. It protects the municipality, and it alleviates guesswork out of what you’re supposed to do,” Mayor Pasquale Menna said. “We want him to stay for five years. Or more.”
The council also endorsed an agreement good through 2013 with the union for the 38-member police force.
