Henderson City Council inducted its newest police chief during its meeting Tuesday night.
Deputy Chief Patrick Moers, 48, was sworn in immediately following the City Council’s vote to approve him as the city’s police chief, Henderson City officials said. Moers replaces Jutta Chambers, who retired this year.
City Manager Jacob Snow selected Moers for the position and introduced him to the city council during the July 3 meeting.
Moers has worked at the Henderson Police Department since 1991. He started his career as a field training officer before climbing the ranks to captain and eventually deputy chief.
Moers is just the 12th police chief since the city’s incorporation in 1953.
