Falls City Police Chief John Caverzagie has submitted his notice to Mayor Tim Hersh of his intent to retire at the end of the month after 35 years as a member of the FCPD. He was appointed Chief in 1997 by then-Mayor Marshall Maddox.
Caverzagie first served seven years as a Patrolman, and was promoted to Assistant Chief, a position he held for 12 years.
Currently, the FCPD has eight officers including the Chief, plus two part-time officers. Applications will be accepted for the position of Chief of Police and Mayor Hersh will submit a name to be appointed to the position. That appointment must then be confirmed by the City Council.
