GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- Grand Rapids has a new top cop.
The western Michigan city on Friday named David Rahinsky as its next police chief. He currently holds the same post in Franklin, Tennessee.
Rahinsky has been police chief in that city since 2011. Before joining Franklin's department as deputy chief in 2006, he held numerous law enforcement posts within the Broward County Sheriff's Department in Florida.
Finalists for the Grand Rapids job included East Grand Rapids' Public Safety Director Mark Herald and Michael Reaves, who holds the same position in Port Huron. Herald left the Grand Rapids department as a captain in 2002 after 18 years of service.
The 48-year-old Rahinsky joins the force on July 7. He replaces Kevin Belk, who officially retired in February.
