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.

    The folks from outside the city are bringing the drama. At least the city had the sense to stop the stupid in the cop dept. good pick Cedarville.

    I agree the old chief was apparently bad news. I’ve heard too much and would like to know the whole story on the old chief. And why he quit both cedarville and van buren pd’s.
