Mayfield mayor to serve as acting police chief

Posted: Updated:
MAYFIELD, Ky. -

Mayfield Mayor Teresa Rochetti-Cantrell has announce she will serve as acting chief for the Mayfield Police Department until July 11. 

Last week, the mayor announced former Kentucky State Police Post Commander Nathan Kent will serve as interim police chief starting July 11, because Mayfield Police Chief Bryan Morrison is out sick after surgery for esophageal cancer. 

In the announcement Thursday, the mayor said: "Due to Major Keller’s resignation and the Police Chief’s continuing extended absence, I will be serving as Acting Chief for the Mayfield Police Department until July 11th."

"Major Keller" refers to the resignation of Maj. Shannon Keller on June 20 following his suspension on June 6. He was one of two officers accused of violating department regulations. The other officer,  Lt. Chris Watkins, resigned June 17.
