CLAYTON, N.J. (AP) - The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office is ending its 27-month supervision of the Clayton Police Department because the town has settled on a new police chief.

Prosecutor Sean Dalton announced on Thursday that Sgt. Andrew Davis will take office on Aug. 11.

The prosecutor’s office has been supervising the department since the 2014 retirement of Chief Dennis Marchei led to a lawsuit over a replacement. A court in 2015 ruled the appointment needed to made from within the department.

During its supervision, the prosecutor’s office says the police department made significant changes in many areas including firearms, body cameras and evidence collection.
