LYNCH, KY. — An eastern Kentucky city has hired a 23-year-old police officer as its new police chief.

The Lynch City Council recently promoted officer Drew Wilson to the top spot. Wilson is a two-year veteran of the force. He replaces former police chief Mike Nunley, who accepted a job with the Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control in London.

The Harlan Daily Enterprise reported that Wilson is an Army noncombat veteran, spending four years in the Army Reserve as a military police soldier, Calvary Scout/instructor. He has worked as a certified police dispatcher and as a volunteer firefighter.

Mayor Johnny Adams said the city is “very happy” with the job Wilson had been doing as a police officer and now chief of police.
