CEDARVILLE (KFSM) – Cedarville Mayor Glenanna O’mara said the city has hired an interim police chief, after the former chief unexpectedly resigned.
Jim Freeman will now take over the department as chief, according to O’mara. In addition, Freeman will also help the city search for a permanent chief, O’mara said.
Over the past four years, the police department in Cedarville has had four different chiefs over the past four years, according to a post on Crawford County Prosecutor Marc McCune’s Facebook page.
After the former chief Blaine Irvin resigned, McCune questioned whether it would be better to have Sheriff Ron Brown take over duties in the city.
Brown said he will continue to assist Cedarville as needed to provide quality law enforcement—as he would any police department in the county.
