NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - Newport has named a new Police Chief on Monday.
Captain Thomas Collins was promoted to Chief of Police during a ceremony. He's been with the department for 11 years.
"This is a good community, I like what I do and we're moving the department in a real good direction," said Chief Collins.
The new chief says the department's biggest challenge is finances and it will take some creative thinking to help the city save money.
