Larry Davis is stepping down as NYC's second-highest official at the Department of Correction. An internal investigation may reveal unauthorized vehicle use and excessive overtime for an officer.

Mr. Davis reportedly suspended himself on Friday, and is leaving after working for DOC for more than three decades.

He had previously come under fire over reported allegations that he took Caribbean vacations paid for by his subordinates. Davis was not available for comment. Michael Hourihane will replace Davis as chief of the DOC.

Meanwhile. City Island resident Dr. Dora B. Schriro, Commissioner of the New York City Department of Correction, who is a nationally recognized innovator in reentry, is the only person in the nation to have led two state and two city correctional systems. The DOC, which is currently seeking a Pres Secretary could have used one this weekend.

Schriro, who directs New York City’s 13,500 inmate jail system. She also served as Special Adviser to Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano on Immigration, Customs Enforcement, Detention and Removal, and as Director for the Office of Detention Policy and Planning with the Department. She directed work on the Department’s plan to overhaul the nation’s immigration detention system.
