The City of Farmer City will soon be searching for a new Police Chief. Chief Terry Scott submitted his resignation Tuesday, August 14, 2018, to accept a new opportunity as the Executive Director of the Danville Public Building Commission. His last day with the City will be August 31, 2018.
Chief Scott came on board in February 2017 when he replaced Chief Andrew Denno. Scott worked as a Farmer City police officer in the 1980’s, then went on to pursue other interests. He then returned to lead the department. Scott oversaw many changes during his tenure, including an aggressive and successful code enforcement program, increased training opportunities for the officers and improved relationships with other regional organizations.
Scott says “It has been a pleasure working for …you (City Manager), our elected officials and employees. I am very pleased with the progress the Police Department has made in serving the community.”
Mayor Scott Kelley says “The Chief has done a great job with helping clean up our community, along with keeping the community informed. He will certainly be missed by all and I hope his new endeavors bring as much joy as he has to the community of Farmer City.
The City intends to bring in an interim Chief while it undergoes a formal recruitment process. Please contact City Manager Sue McLaughlin at (309) 928-3412 with any questions. Thank you!
