Middletown once again searching for police chief

Posted: Updated:

Middletown is losing another police chief.

Steven Wheeler announced he is leaving on April 11. He has taken anther job after leading the Middletown department for a little over a year.

Middletown has had four different police chiefs in two years.

Officials would not discuss why there's been so much turnover.

"Certainly I was surprised, disappointed," Mayor James Curry said. "Chief Wheeler and I, over the last couple of months after being sworn in in January, have really started to develop a relationship. I thought he took strides in the right direction for the department so to hear that hear he is leaving I am disappointed."

Curry said borough council will discuss hiring a new chief at its next meeting.
