The Farmville Town Council has appointed Andy Ellington as acting police chief for the Farmville Police Department.
Ellington’s appointment follows the resignation of Chief Curtis Davis whose last day on the job was Saturday. Davis announced his resignation in June. Davis left the position of Police Chief to pursue employment outside of law enforcement.
Chief Ellington has been a member of the Farmville Police Department for 29 years and was also appointed acting police chief a few years ago while the search for a new chief was underway. That search resulted in the hiring of Chief Davis.
In August Town Council will begin the process of reviewing applications for a new police chief. “I plan to apply for the position,” said Ellington. “I’ve worked closely with Chief Davis the past year and a half and I feel like I am ready for the position.”
With the appointment of Ellington, several other changes have occurred. William “Bill” Hogan has been named acting deputy chief and captain while Detective Sgt. Christopher Moss was named special operations lieutenant.
