Cpl. Scott Brown selected to serve as interim police chief in Oxford
● By Steven Hoffman
In one of its first actions of 2018, Oxford Borough Council appointed Cpl. Scott Brown to serve as the interim police chief.
The decision was made immediately following an hour-long executive session during borough council's Jan. 2 reorganization meeting. The vote to name Cpl. Brown the interim police chief was unanimous.
Borough council notified Police Chief John Slauch last fall that his contract would not be extended when it expired at the end of the year.
Brown will serve until a new police chief is named. A committee is being formed to conduct the search for a new police chief, and no timetable for the hiring has been set yet.
