California Accepting For Police Chief

The California, Missouri police department is searching for a new chief of police.

Chief John Hoover turned his resignation in last month after he replaced former chief Michael Ward in May last year.

Ward was accused of purchasing weapons and accessories with city funds and then selling them for personal profit.

The reason for Hoover’s resignation has not been given.

Shane Templeton has been appointed interim police chief while the city is going through applications to fill the position.
