FAYETTE -- The Fayette City Council promoted police officer Benjamin Davis as the next police chief. Current Chief Richard Pisanti submitted his resignation last month after accepting a position in Florida.
Davis worked as a police officer in Strawberry Point before he came to Fayette in June 2016.
He takes over the position Saturday.
"Chief Pisanti made great strides in bringing the department up to date and I would like to continue that trend," Davis said.
Davis said he will begin taking applications to fill his position immediately.
