GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Galloway Township is the first town in Atlantic County to appoint a woman as police chief.

Chief Donna Higbee is a 13-year veteran of the police department.

She succeeds chief Pat Moran, who retired last month.

The 39-year-old tells The Press of Atlantic City (https://bit.ly/1eM6m1h ) her family helped settle a section of the township known as Higbeetown. Her father also retired from the police force in 1999 after 27 years.
