The swearing in ceremony of Jeffrey M. Hadley as Chatham County Chief of Police was held last Monday at the Southwest Branch Library (Savannah Mall).
A national search by a third-party employment recruiter (Stanton Chase of Atlanta), highly recommended Jeffrey M. Hadley, public safety chief of Kalamazoo, Michigan, for the position of the head of the Chatham County Police Department. Chatham County Manager Lee Smith and his management team interviewed Chief Hadley and made an offer of employment which he accepted on Monday, November 6, 2017.
Chief Hadley has 26 years of experience in law enforcement and public safety with 14 of those years in senior level management. He is a graduate of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s
National Academy and its Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar.
Additionally, Terry Shoop and Julie Tolbert were sworn in as Interim Assistant Chiefs of Police and twenty plus officers (who served with Chatham County Police Department at the time the City of Savannah and Chatham County contracted for service) were sworn in as returning Chatham County Police Officers.
