OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - After more than two hours behind closed doors, the Ocean Springs Board of Aldermen came out and unanimously voted to put interim Chief Mark Dunston in as the city’s new police chief.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1EH64ib) aldermen and the mayor met behind closed doors Wednesday with the Civil Service Commission with the intent of finally voting on a police chief.

Mayor Connie Moran said she was pleased to announce the new appointment, even though she had planned to have an information-gathering session on the police department in an effort to break what was considered a stalemate among aldermen.

Dunston has 30 years of experience in law enforcement and extensive training. He is also the former police chief of Long Beach.
