Metropolis Gets a New Police Chief

Metropolis, Illinois has a new Police Chief. At Monday's City Council meeting, Mayor Billy McDaniel appointed Harry Masse to take over following Chief Mike Worthen's retirement. Masse served with the Illinois State Police for 27 years. He's also a US Army veteran, and a graduate of the FBI police executive academy. Mayor McDaniel says since Masse already receives benefits from the State Police, his appointment will save the city money and help save jobs. The Paducah Sun reports Masse is set to transition into the position this week before taking over March 2nd.
