A new era started Tuesday for the Huntington Police Department.

Mayor David Felinton swore on new chief Skip Holbrook at city hall. Friends, family and co-workers packed council chambers to support the chief in his new role.

Holbrook is a Huntington native and spent several years working in law enforcement in Charlotte. His specialty is tackling drug crimes. The chief said he’s looking forward to working with the police department and welcomes input from other officers.

Among those in the crowd today, Chief Holbrook’s family and some former co-workers made the drive from Charlotte. Chief Holbrook starts his job immediately.
