Editor’s note: This will never happen in Pottstown, sigh…..
In something of a leadership shake-up, Chester Mayor John Linder has replaced three of his highest level police officers with three formerly lower-ranking lawmen.
In addition, the mayor announced Tuesday that he has created a police narcotics task force and beefed up highway patrol.
Linder, who also is the city’s public safety director, said the personnel moves are part of the changes and on-going assessment he vowed when he took office last year.
“I saw some areas I wanted to change, and the only way to change things was to move (personnel) around,” Linder said Tuesday.
