WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita City officials have promoted a police department veteran to interim police chief.
City officials announced Friday that Deputy Chief Nelson Mosley will serve as interim chief while a search for a permanent chief is conducted.
The 49-year-old Mosley will replace Chief Norman Williams, who plans to retire Sept. 5.
Mosley began his law enforcement career in 1987 and rose through the ranks to become deputy police chief in 2009.
City Manager Robert Layton is overseeing the search for a new permanent chief, as well as assessment of the police department’s operations, which is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
