SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - The city of Savannah has chosen a new police chief.

The Georgia city on Thursday announced in a news release that 58-year-old Roy Minter was chosen for the job after a nationwide search. Minter is currently the chief of police in Peoria, Arizona. The news release says he served as chief in Denton, Texas from 2008-2011. He also served in several positions during 15 years with the Aurora, Colorado, police department.

The Savannah Morning News reports that Minter will replace Joseph Lumpkin, who announced almost seven months ago that he was resigning to head DeKalb County’s public safety department.
