MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Interim police chief John Meza has been named the new police chief in Mesa.

The selection was announced by city officials Monday.

Meza is a former assistant police chief who has been with the city for more than 28 years.

He was appointed interim police chief on Feb. 2 when Chief Frank Milstead was picked by Gov. Doug Ducey to become the new director of the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

Meza served as an assistant police chief for seven years, most recently overseeing the Operations Bureau and three years as commander over the Central Command.

He was hired by the police department in 1986 and served as a lieutenant for six years and a sergeant for seven years.
