When taking the position in 2017, Chief Blaine Clark expressed, “Public service has always been a passion of mine,” “Ever since I was a child, as long as I can remember, I wanted to work in public safety. I wanted to be both a police officer and firefighter because that’s something I witnessed my dad doing as well."

Today, Clark was placed on administrative leave and Officer Shawn McCleary was given the title of Interim Police Chief.

There are no other details at this time; we expect to bring you more on this today.
