NEWTON, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama town whose part-time police chief relocated is now seeking a full-time person for the position.
The Dothan Eagle reports that Mayor William Pruett says Newton will accept applications for the position through Feb. 16, with the goal of selecting a new police chief in March.
The former part-time police chief, Eric Duhaime, was a contracted employee at Fort Rucker who was relocated to Fort Campbell in Kentucky after less than a year at the Newton job. Pruett praised the relationships Duhaime built with the town’s government and residents.
