City of Moss Interviewing Candidates for Police Chief
The City of Moss Point is looking for a new police chief.
The position was vacated after former Police Chief Art McClung was fired. Dash-cam footage surfaced of McClung being pulled over for speeding and admitting to driving under the influence.
Current Interim Police Chief Brandon Ashley tells News 25 he did not apply for the position because of the uncertainty of the upcoming city elections. He said in a statement that the City of Moss Point could have a new mayor and board at the time and he doesn’t want to chance his future with the uncertain circumstance.
The City of Moss Point has had seven police chiefs since 2000.
