Interim chief in Carlisle

Enquirer Contributor

        CARLISLE — Village officials have tapped a police veteran from Hamilton and Clermont counties to rebuild their shattered police department.

        Daniel L. Chilton, 55, started Monday as interim police chief. He will be paid $5,000 a month under a three-month contract. He will be allowed to use a car and be issued standard police equipment. He will have full police powers.

        “I'm not one that plans on standing still,” said Mr. Chilton, who retired as Milford's police chief in 1997 and was chief in two other local communities during his career. “We will move forward on anything that's needed.”

        He is not expected to be a candidate for the chief's job.

        The Carlisle department has been rocked by a string of problems in recent weeks that led to the resignations of Chief Gary Long and Sgt. Brad Fogle. They are accused of vandalizing the home of former village manager Eric Levitt in 1995. Both resigned last week, but they had been on administrative leave with pay since earlier this month.

        No charges are expected to be filed against the former officers.

        Also last week, Lt. John Perry, who was serving as acting chief, was suspended with pay after Franklin police charged him with driving under the influence.

        Mr. Chilton was Milford's police chief from 1993-97 and had been chief in Moraine, Ohio, and in Fairfax.
