The Auburn Police Department is currently in the process of identifying a new deputy chief, with the decision pending the results of a written civil service test.
The appointment is slated to replace former Deputy Chief Roger Anthony, who retired in April, according to Auburn Police Chief James Slayton.
The test was undertaken by four department members on March 25, with the results expected in the coming month or two.
Once received, the department will promptly make a decision on the deputy chief position. Slayton confirmed the imminent appointment telling The Citizen, “I haven’t made a deputy chief yet, looking to very soon.”
The outgoing Deputy Chief Anthony, a veteran of the APD since 1997, is due to begin his new role as the director of security for Auburn Community Hospital in June.
