Paintsville Mayor Appoints New Police Chief

An Eastern Kentucky town could have a new police chief soon.

The Paintsville mayor has appointed Lowell Ward to the position. Ward still has to be confirmed by a city council vote at next Monday's meeting before being publicly sworn in.

The mayor says Ward has a history in law enforcement most recently with Operation UNITE and before that he was a state trooper.
