Danville's Police Chief Going To Somerset

DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Danville's police chief and director of public safety has announced that he plans to retire at the end of March to become police chief in Somerset. Jeff Peek will be going home. He's a native of Pulaski County.

The 45 year old Peek has been with the Danville Police Department for 24 years. When he took the chief's job in 2002, he said he only planned to serve for five years. He said he had already decided to retire in July and return to Pulaski County, but moved the process up by two months after learning about the Somerset opening.
