Butler Township commissioners Monday appointed a long-time veteran of its police force as the new chief.

John Hays, 58, a township native and resident, takes over from Gary D. Garman, who retired in January.

Hays was second in command of the department before his promotion, with the rank of lieutenant. He has been with the department for almost 35 years.
