MESA, Ariz. (AP) - City officials in Mesa say Assistant Police Chief Michael Dvorak will serve as interim chief while a national search is conducted.

He replaces outgoing Chief John Meza, who is retiring at the end of this month after 30 years with the police department.

Dvorak will begin his new assignment on Dec. 22.

He will serve as interim chief until a new police chief is hired through a national search that will start early next year.

Dvorak has been with Mesa for more than 29 years and has served as part of the police command staff since 2004, most recently overseeing the Investigations Bureau.

He’s a graduate of Arizona State University and has a master’s degree in educational leadership from Northern Arizona University.
