What the hell? Our fair city has a bona fide sheriff (with a badge and everything!). And yes, there’s a new sheriff in town.

His name is Edward A. Domenech and he’s relocating from his law enforcement job in DC. So yeah, New York City Sheriff: responsibilities include tracking down deadbeat dads, busting up illegal cigarette rings and, according to original city charters dating from the 17th century, overseeing rescue operations in the event of a shipwreck. And in what seems straight from a Coen brothers screenplay, Domenech (and his wife) will be staying in his childhood bedroom at his parents’ house in Queens (until he can find an apartment).
