Waterford, MI - On Monday, March 9, 2015, the Waterford Township Board of Trustees adopted a Resolution calling for the Pension Board of the Township Police and Fire Retirement System to immediately retire Police Chief Daniel T. McCaw.
The Resolution was based on a provision of Michigan’s Fire Fighters and Police Officers Retirement Act (Public Act 345 of 1937) under which the Police and Fire Retirement System and its Pension Board were created and operate. That provision provides for the Pension Board to retire a member of the retirement system that is at least 60 years old upon the written application of the legislative body, which in Waterford is the Township Board of Trustees.
Chief McCaw, who has been on paid administrative leave for many months, recently reached age 60. In the Resolution, the Township Board thanked and expressed its appreciation to the Chief for his many years of service to the Township and its residents, and wished him well in retirement.
The Township looks forward to providing the best law enforcement services possible to its residents under a new Chief working with the dedicated and hardworking officers of the our Police Department.
