Shaler Township has a new police chief and a new police officer.

The board of commissioners on Tuesday night promoted Lt. Bryan Kelly to become the new chief, replacing former chief Jeffrey Galley, who stepped down in January.

Kelly has served on the Shaler Township Police Department for 27 years.

Robert Cook, 27 of Shaler, will join the police force following routine physical and psychological testing and complete a one-year probationary period as patrolman.

Cook is a Shaler Area High School graduate. He graduated from Allegheny County Police Academy in 2004. He has served as a police officer in Millvale and Blawnox and has been with the Etna Police Department for the past seven years.
