COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – A 28-year veteran of the Colorado Springs Police Department has been named its new police chief.

The Gazette reports Mayor Steve Bach announced Tuesday that interim Police Chief Peter “Pete” Carey will be the permanent chief. He takes over for Richard Myers, who resigned in October and is now interim police chief of the Manitou Springs Police Department.

Carey became deputy chief in 2008. Before that, he served on the Colorado Springs Department since 1984 in various roles, including as Master Patrol Officer, a field training officer, crisis negotiator and a narcotics detective.

He began his career with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office in 1982.
