Former Monroeville Police Chief Doug Cole could return to the position as soon as next week, pending a council vote on Tuesday.

Interim Borough Manager Tim Little announced Thursday he would add the item to the meeting agenda. He said residents made it clear in November they wanted Cole back when they elected four council candidates who voiced support for the former chief.

“It's what the public wants, and the police department needs a leader to start to get it back in working order,” new Councilwoman Linda Gaydos said .

A police chief and an acting police chief have each overseen the department since Cole was demoted in February. Cole, who was demoted and later fired by former borough manager Lynette McKinney, said he looks forward to returning as chief, if that's what council decides, and “moving the police department forward in 2014.”
