Gautier police chief to retire end of May
Gautier Police Chief Daniel Selover, who has served in the position since March 2020, will retire May 31.
Selover notified city leadership this week.
“I have been with the Gautier Police Department since 1992, and it is an honor to have served as chief for the last two years,” Selover said. “As I move into this next phase of my life, I hope I have left the city a safer place to live, work and raise a family.”
Selover is originally from South Amboy, New Jersey, but moved to Pascagoula in 1983 when his father, Gary Selover, became fire chief at Chevron’s Pascagoula refinery. He is a 1986 graduate of Pascagoula High School, and he joined the Gautier police reserves in 1992. In 1993, he was hired as a full-time police officer with the Gautier Police Department.
In 1997, Selover was promoted to patrol lieutenant, and in 2007 he was promoted to patrol captain. In 2012, he was reassigned administrative captain under former Chief Dante Elbin. In March 2020, Selover was selected as chief of police.
“On behalf of the Gautier City Council and the citizens of this community, I would like to thank Danny for his many years of dedicated service to the City of Gautier,” Mayor Casey Vaughan said. “He deserves many happy years of retirement.”
