Fort Payne announced its new chief of police.

David Davis, who is currently an investigator with the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office, was named to the position. 

He will meet with the mayor on Wednesday to figure out when he'll start his new job. The city clerk expects this to be before the end of the year.

“Even though it is tough to lose someone of this caliber, it is such a blessing knowing the working relationship we will have between the two Agencies. Not only will Fort Payne benefit, but all of DeKalb County,” DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said.
