Police Chief Gregg Jarvies has announced his intention to retire on April 1. After 31 years of service, Jarvies has stated his desire to spend more time with his family and focus on personal pursuits. His leadership has been credited with building a police department that expresses the community’s values.
The police chief position has been advertised nationally to draw a diverse pool of qualified and outstanding candidates. Town Manager Roger L. Stancil said the successful candidate will be one who meets community criteria and has proven leadership skills that can continue to build a department that expresses the community’s values. The NC League of Municipalities will assist in the process of assessing candidates.
“The League has much experience in helping towns identify the community’s criteria and matching candidates experience with those criteria,” Stancil said. “We look forward to their participation and assistance.”
