Somerset Looking For New Police Chief

Somerset is now looking for its fifth police chief in less than six months.

Somerset Chief Jeff Peek has resigned. A source within the department says Peek and Mayor Eddie Girdler could not agree on issues. Peek was the fourth full time or interim chief since Mayor Girdler took office in January.

His resignation is effective on July 9th.

The mayor tells the Somerset Commonwealth Journal that Peek's resignation is a surprise.
