The Fayette City Council promoted Fayette Officer Benjamin Davis as the next Police Chief at the May 7th regular council meeting.  Current Fayette Police Chief Richard Pisanti submitted his resignation last month after accepting a position in Florida.  Davis worked as a police officer in Strawberry Point before he came to Fayette in June of 2016.

Davis plans on beginning the application process immediately for a new full-time officer to fill the vacancy in the department.  “I am excited at this opportunity to serve this community at a higher expectation and look forward to working with everyone.” Davis closed.

Davis will take over as Fayette Police Chief on May 12th.
