This week, Moss Point named an interim police chief to manage the department while the city looks for a new chief. Tuesday, the Moss Point Board of Aldermen appointed Art McClung to the interim position.

Last month, Keith Davis, the former police chief, announced he was resigning. At the time, McClung was serving as Moss Point’s deputy chief. McClung has been with the department for almost two years. He tells News 25 he plans to apply for the permanent police chief position.

McClung says, “I truly believe that God has a destiny for you, and mine was to be a police officer, and I didn't want to just stay as patrol. I wanted to work my way up, because I really believe as chief, I said it earlier this week, you become chief servant and you have the ability to touch more people in a positive way.”

Former Chief Davis would not specify why he was leaving, but he cited a deteriorating relationship with Moss Point’s Mayor. Interim Chief McClung tells News 25 he doesn't know why Davis resigned.
