Share post:

Manhattan, IL – In a twist to the search saga for a new police chief, Manhattan brings back their freshly retired chief. 

Retired Manhattan Chief Jeff Wold, who left his post in late June this year, has been unanimously ushered back in by the village board after expressing his intent to rejoin. Mayor Mike Adrieansen, who previously admired Wold’s efforts to modernize the police department, shared, “I was sorry to see Jeff leave.” Wold, after a brief respite, felt he had “unfinished business.” 

Despite other candidates in the fray, the village council found solace in Wold’s experience and commitment to mentoring for a seamless transition.
