A 24-year veteran of Middletown Police is set to be named the division's new chief.

The selection of Major Rodney Muterspaw, 46, was announced Tuesday by City Manager Douglas Adkins.

Muterspaw will be named Chief of the Middletown Division of Police pending city council approval at the Feb. 17 session. He replaces Chief David VanArsdale who took the position of Director of Public Safety for the city.

“Muterspaw's relationship with the employees of the Division of Police as well as his strong ties to the community are great assets in moving the department forward and continuing the collaborative working environment with the residents of Middletown,” said Adkins in a statement released by the city on Tuesday. 

Middletown has a police force of more than 60 members.
