Task force veteran is new Lincoln police chief

A Unity Township man with 27 years of law enforcement experience is Lincoln’s new police chief.

Council on Tuesday unanimously approved the hiring of Richard Bosco to succeed the late Michael Lupinacci.

Councilman Paul Vereb was absent.

Lupinacci, 51, of West Hempfield died on May 16 of neuroendocrine cancer.

He was hired as a rookie officer in 1999 and was chief for 2½ years. He spent his last 18 months fighting the disease, which was diagnosed on his 50th birthday.

Bosco said he met Lupinacci once, and has heard nothing but positive things about him from borough residents.

“All I can tell you with true earnest is that he was highly revered,” Bosco said. “Nobody’s ever made any type of comment about trying to fill his shoes, but I fully understand their reverence toward him, and I respect that.”
