Rocton Still Without Police Chief

By  | 

Rockton police officers will have to wait a while longer before they get a new chief.

Village president Dale Adams said Monday night he would announce the new Chief of Police, but in a surprise move, he's delayed that announcement saying he's still negotiation with the candidate.

The appointment is on hold until the negotiations are complete. Rockton's Village Board has gone 14 months without naming a new chief of police.

Adams says he understands residents and police officers are getting tired of the long process of choosing a police chief, but says he is close to making a final decision.
