HURON, S.D. (AP) - City officials in Huron have named a new police chief.

Long-time Deputy Chief Denny Meyer has been appointed to the top position at the Huron Police Department. Meyer has been with the department for 36 years.

Meyer had been serving as interim director of public safety since former director Gary Will Jr. resigned to take on a new position in Savannah, Tennessee. Will had served as chief since 2011, when his predecessor Doug Schmitt stepped down after making controversial comments about immigration to a state legislative committee.

Huron City Commission acted as the hiring board.
