Topeka Police Chief Brown sworn in

TOPEKA (KSNT) – Topeka’s newest police chief is officially on the job Wednesday.

James Brown was sworn in Wednesday morning at the Law Enforcement Center.

Municipal Court Judge Vic Miller presided over the proceedings. Brown then took the podium and addressed his new employees as well as the public that had gathered.

He says that the department will take clues from communities on enforcement efforts in community policing.

“We go out and our community policing officers attend a lot of community meetings, so we find out what the needs are of every single community group and the needs differ throughout the community.”

Brown previously served as a lieutenant colonel and assistant chief of police in Kansas City, Kan.

He takes over for former Police Chief Ron Miller who is waiting confirmation as U.S. Marshal for Kansas.
